CHARITY BRIDGE 14th MARCH, 2018
In aid of ALZHEIMERS SOCIETY
We would like to thank all our members and friends for supporting our Charity Bridge Day.
Your overwhelming support in volunteering your time, cooking biscuits and making cakes, pies and preserves, also your generous donations and purchase of raffle tickets, made a successful and enjoyable day for all. Our in-house catering team did an excellent afternoon tea as always, and a huge thankyou to Maureen for supplying such a delight! We raised £1,150 for this worthy cause.
Your support and generosity is much appreciated. Our success is due to teamwork from our members and your continued interest in helping those less fortunate than ourselves.
Thankyou to you all.
Christina Halstead and team

PENDLE WITCH PAIRS
On Sunday 12th November 68 players took part in the annual Pendle Witch Pairs event. This comprised afternoon and evening sessions between which was served a delicious meal by the club’s own catering team. A strong field had entered with many leading players from across the North West and Yorkshire. At the interval and well above their seeding the leaders were We Che Tham and David Tilley. Close by in second place were Kath Nelson and John Currie. Kath and John maintained their form in the second session and were the eventual winners of the trophy. Many congratulations to Kath and John. The highest placed Brierfield pair in a creditable seventh place were Dorothy Slater and Roy Waddington.
Congratulations also go the winners of the Middle Expert Trophy, Steven Ward and Chris Hine and the winners of the Non-Expert Trophy, David Tilley and We Che Tam.
The event although competitive was a friendly sociable occasion and a good way to learn new bridge skills from able and competent players. Many thanks to all those who worked hard in organising the event and particularly to Paul Hepworth for directing, Alan Crabtree for overall organisation and of course, Maureen Ashton and her hard working catering team.
