New Premises Win Design Award
New Premises Win Design Award

At an awards ceremony on Monday 4th July our new premises were one of 25 buildings shortlisted in the 2022 York Design Awards. York Bridge Club were announced as joint winners of the sustainability award judged by a panel of experts.

The judges agreed our building design has at its heart sustainability and flexibility:-

  • It is south facing to maximises solar gain, with louvres to control overheating.
  • Rooms are north facing with small windows to minimise heat loss.
  • Energy consumption is reduced by fabric approach airtightness and thermal insulation enhancements.
  • The building’s heating and hot water is supplied by an air source heat pump.
  • Electricity is provided by solar installation with storage batteries to supply off grid energy.
  • The building is externally clad in brick and composite cladding allows the building to be maintenance free and ensures longevity.

The below picture shows our architect Nick Silcock, Chairman Stuart Kay, and Trustee Martin Bayne, who were present at the awards ceremony.

First Nora Penn Youth Award 2022
First Nora Penn Youth Award 2022

The recent AGM, saw the award of the first of the new Nora Penn Youth Awards.


Sadly, Nora’s daughter was unable to make the meeting to make the award in person but she sent a lovely email describing her mother’s passion for bridge and for supporting youth players. The award was made by Sally Gregory, the new Chair of Trustees.


This first award was won by Kai Taylor who receives a place for him and a partner at one of the EBU’s junior teach-in sessions plus a certificate and books.


The Youth Pair (Junior Aces) award was won by Kai Taylor and Aaron Rich.


Congratulations to them both.
