After the sad loss of Roger Bowles his widow donated Roger's extensive collection of bridge books to Worcester Bridge Club. It was agreed that the books should be made available to all County Members and the list of books can be seen at Roger Bowles Bridge Library.
The WCBA Committee has been giving considerable thought to the feasibility of acquiring bridge premises for the use of Worcestershire bridge players that would be available 7 days a week, with the ability to cater for the growing demand for daytime bridge. It is envisaged that the premises will support at least a 20 table session with room for matches, teaching and storage with a basic level of catering. The planned venue will include adequate facilities for parking, toilets, heating etc. A few documents are available in the Members Only area of the website, one asking for feedback and one being a feasibility review. To access the Members Only area of the website for the first time you will need the Membership Registration Code which you can get from Paul Hammond or other Committee Members.
