Celebrating our 30th Anniversary

The Sapphire Coast Bridge Club celebrated 30yrs at a club lunch on Sunday, 14 October.


It was wonderful to reminisce on days gone by at the anniversary lunch. Di Woolford, Bruce McPhail and Colin Manley spoke about the club’s evolution from modest beginnings to a thriving Bridge Club.


Unfortunately, one of our life members, Jon Harrod, was unable to attend to ill health. We look forward to seeing him back soon at the bridge table. On a brighter note, it was great to have Shirley Dixon attend, life member and hard worker at the club in our earlier days.
