BILL MEDD
BILL MEDD

Bill Medd died peacefully at home on Sunday 16th January 2022 aged 97 years. Many club members will have memories of Bill from the time he joined WBC in the early 1990s. I have reason to hold particularly fond memories of Bill. We each joined the club within a day or so of each other and, neither having a partner, John Gullick paired us together. Bill, then in his mid 60's, and a recently retired Cardiologist, informed me he hadn't played bridge since his days as a medical student. He became a very keen bridge student, always showering his teacher, Martha Jaynes, with presents, generally from his garden. He was both a kind and generous man. After a couple of years at the club Bill wished to thank his many partners, and opponents, for the pleasure they had brought him. He invited about thirty members to his home for supper. We also had the opportunity of viewing Bill's splendid garden which he had developed over some thirty years. 

A Service of Thanksgiving for his life will be held on Monday 31st January, 2.30pm at Long Barrow Ceremony Hall, Harbour View Crematorium, Lytchett Minster, Dorset, BH16 6AN.

SIMON
SIMON

WBC member Simon Cochemé’s book Bridge with a Twist has been given the IBPA (International Bridge Press Association) award for bridge book of the year.

Simon tells me that, as a result, the odds of him receiving the Noble Prize for Literature have shortened considerably.
