Covid Symptons

Let's look after ourselves and those around us at bridge

If you have any NEW respiratory symptons please do a lateral flow test before attending and if they are covid specific (high temperature; sneezing; blocked nose; new continuous cough; loss or change of sense of taste or smell), the NHS advise that you get a PCR test done and stay at home until you get the results, so DON'T COME TO BRIDGE! 

Please respect the choices of those around you regarding precautions they wish to take (or not take)


New rules in response to Omicron variant , this guidance applies to ENGLAND (Dec 2021)

You must wear a face covering in shops and on public transport. Face coverings should be worn in communal areas of universities, colleges and schools by staff, visitors and pupils or students in year 7 and above.

If you’re travelling to England from abroad you must take a PCR test before the end of day 2 following your arrival and self-isolate until you get a negative test result, even if you’re fully vaccinated.

If you’re a contact of someone who may have been infected with the Omicron variant, you must self-isolate for 10 days, regardless of your age, vaccination status or any negative test results.

Refresher training for directors

Refresher Training for Directors

Ken Johnson has kindly agreed to do some online Zoom training for club TDs and anyone who has an interest in bridge rulings. It will be a general update for people who have forgotten a lot of the basic stuff over the COV19  period and should be very useful....and as you all know Ken is a very experienced and capable TD.

We are intending to hold it on either Saturday 18th Dec at 2 pm or Sunday 19th Dec at 2pm ...or maybe even both days depending on numbers. Cost will be a nominal £2/3

If you are interested please contact Alan James with a preference date at  or 0190061192, or Wendy Owen (County Secretary)

It will be open to all well as all our friends in the South of the county who may want to attend. 

Pivot Teams
Westmorland is running a Pivot Teams competition on Sunday 5 December 2021 starting at 1:30pm. There will be three stanzas and you partner a different member of your team in each one. Teams of any standard are very welcome. It will be run using RealBridge and we expect to play 24 or so boards. All the profits will be given out as prizes. We very much welcome teams from Cumbria to play in this competition which was very successful the last time it ran (January this year) with 14 teams taking part.
