Everton Bridge Club continued to thrive in 2014, and has started 2015 in a similar fashion. We have around 50 full playing members drawn from throughout the local area and while standards and abilities may vary, we are all cheerfully enthusiastic! We gather on Tuesday Evenings and have up to 9 tables playing duplicate bridge in a friendly, competitive environment.
We meet at around 6.30 in St. Mary’s Church Hall and guests or visiting players are always welcome. Except for the 1st Tuesday in each month when we have our Ladder Pairs competition, we run a host system that means we can even accommodate single players looking for a game on most occasions.
As a Club, we feel it is important to make a contribution to help others and we actively support local and national charities. This year our annual Charity Event on March 17th will be in aid of ‘Honeypot’ who are based near Exbury and do sterling work providing holidays and respite for children who are full time carers for adult family members. In November 2014 we took part in the ‘Children in Need’ Simultaneous Pairs Competition when we managed to contribute £150 to the appeal.
On the social front, the AGM & Christmas Party in December was great fun as usual, with good food, good company and good humour. Looking forward, the advent of Spring and the lighter evenings mean that the Chairman’s BBQ in June is not too far away!
If you are interested in coming along to meet us and hopefully join our Club you will find all our details on our web page at www.bridgewebs.com/evertonbc .
