All Members, Staff and Friends of Wigan Bridge Club.
I should like to send Best Wishes to all and sincerely hope that we can all stay free of this deadly corona virus.
I hope that this lock down has been successful in saving lives and that it will soon be over so that we can resume some form of normality.
We are grateful to the doctors, nurses and all the staff of the N.H.S. who are working so hard caring for the thousands of sick patients both in hospital and in homes.
I hope it will not be too long before we are able to open up the Bridge Club again and resume game play.
In the meantime stay safe, stay healthy.
Bridge Base Online (BBO) is a free online bridge system.
You can register for free and play Solitaire or other games.
Alternatively, someone can start a table and play bridge with friends.
It may look a bit daunting at first but gets easier with a bit of practice.
