In the light of the Government announcement this afternoon, the Committee has concluded that play at Woodberry tomorrow (Tuesday 17th March) will NOT go ahead after all. For the same reason play at the Club will be suspended for the foreseeable future - ie until official guidance is clear that social contact can be resumed safely. This is sad, but exceptional circumstances require exceptional responses.
As mentioned in my e mail yesterday, the Committee will be looking into possibilities to facilitate members playing Woodberry bridge online over the period that normal weekly club nights are suspended. Any progress on this will be notified by Pianola messages in due course.
The Committee hopes everyone stays well and look forward to seeing you when normal life resumes.
With best wishes
Mary Carter on behalf of the Committee
Sadly Eric Kresner passed away suddenly on Sunday 27th October.
His funeral will be private.
Our condolences to his widow Denise, family and friends.
Eric was a founder member of the club, and played regularly with Denise until last year when illness prevented their regular attendance.
He will be much missed by all at Woodberry.
It is with great sadness that we have to report the sudden death of John Stimson on 16th August. John was a long standing member of Woodberry Bridge Club, and will be sorely missed.

Why do people take selfies when they could just ask a stranger to take a photo for them?
Fortunately the second attempt was much better! As you see from the shades Saturday morning was very sunny, at least to start with.
I heard later those who went for fish & chips got soaked more than just by vinegar!
It was lovely for me to rejoin club members and enjoy another Woodberry Weekend.
We very much were missing Gill Hutchinson who sadly passed away the week before. Many of us had know Gill and enjoyed her friendship for years. She will be greatly missed.
