We would like to recruit more people so that their ideas and suggestions can be heard and used to benefit the club.

New club members and more long-standing members will be very welcome.  Being a Committee member need not be onerous.  The amount of time you are able to commit will be entirely up to you.  No-one will be expected to do more than they wish.

If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Susan Hoyle, our Secretary, who will always be very willing to answer your queries.

North Eastern Bridge Association Success

Congratulations to Stuart Davies who, playing with a partner from Manchester, came second out of 68 pairs in the NEBA Swiss pairs event held on 2 November.  On the following day Stuart's team was first - with 33 teams competing.  Both were great results!


We are very short of players in the Thursday afternoon drives and it would be much appreciated if you could come along and support Ray and his group.

The afternoons are attended by players of varying standards and everyone will be very welcome.

You won't need a partner, because, not only does Ray run the drive, he always acts as host too.

Please come!
