CAFE BRIDGE

WBC CAFE BRIDGE took place on Thursday 13th October, and was much enjoyed by all. We were truly sorry to have to turn some people away - a measure of the popularity of these events.

This year, we were supporting The Foundation Dementia Café, an excellent initiative from the Worcester Warriors Foundation. Early calculations suggested that we managed to raise a stunning £560++, with a few final details to be checked

The Bridge was keenly contested, and various re-calculations kept coming up with different winners...

CAFE BRIDGE
November Update

Jimmy's NICKO team (Jimmy, David, Ross, Mel) reached the FINAL of the Plate competition -  They lost out in a closely fought event; commiserations, and best wishes to both our teams for 2022-23!

Roger Bowles Bridge Library

Members might like to know more about the Roger Bowles Bridge Library.

After Roger's tragic death in Dec 2015, his widow donated his extensive collection of Bridge books to us; it was agreed that these should be managed by the County Bridge Association, and they are stored by Martin Gill.  The full list of some 125 titles (both educational and humorous) can be found here, along with Martin Gill's contact details.

We have a small "taster" selection at Claines for people to see, and books can also be booked out from there, using the notebook to record borrowing and return.
