Increased membership of Grantham Bridge Club has led to a change of venue.

The club recently moved from Harlaxton, where they had been for the past 14 years, to Barrowby Pavilion.

The club was started in the late 1960s by the late Keith and Pauline Ibbotson, originally meeting at The George Hotel. It is currently the only bridge club in Grantham affiliated to The English Bridge Union, and runs two teams of eight who compete in the Leicestershire League.

From March to May the club held a “No Fears” morning session for people who had just taken up the game, or wished to improve. They proved so popular that they will recommence on Wednesday, September 4 at 10.30am in The Reading Room, Barrowby. Contact June Dixon (Tel: 541432) for more details.

Normal club nights are Monday and Tuesday, 7pm for 7.15pm start. Anyone wishing to play should contact Irene Pacey (Tel: 01949 843138).

Last week’s winners were Shona Berrisford and Dierdra Pickup and Gaby Leigh and Jim Steele on Monday, and Sandra and Noel Dunne and Rebecca Ronan and Judy Hulland on Tuesday.
