FRENCH TWINNING

Shaftesbury Bridge Club in Dorset twinned with

the St Renan Bridge Club (Nr Brest, Brittany,

France) in 2014. Some 16 members with some

spouses were hosted in France. A return visit

took place at the end of September 2015 and

we're confident les Francais enjoyed themselves

immensely in Dorset. Pip Duncan

JUNIOR CONGRESS

The average age of the Oxford Bridge Club was

lowered dramatically in November when thirty

children, aged 8 - 18 years descended upon the

balloon-decorated premises generating laughter

and good will.

With three sections to run, mini-bridge,

novice bidders and experienced bidders, an

accolade must surely go to our scorers and TDs,

Diane Coe, Mike Fletcher and Peter Sherry, who

managed to keep boards and children moving,

despite the cross-table chatting!

When we called a halt, everyone descended

upon the tea table, groaning with goodies,

mostly donated by parents, while the scorers

feverishly attempted to generate results.

Prizes were presented by Richard Sills,

Chairman of the Oxford Bridge Club. In the

mini-bridge section, first prize went to Reading

siblings, Jacob and Alice Hathaway (in spite of

one of them trumping the other's ace!!!) In the

novice bidders section, where we had four full

tables, the results were extremely close with John

Wood and Freya Baldwin taking first prizes and

top prizes in the experienced section went to the

Anstice brothers, Arthur and George.

Thanks to the Chairman and Trustees of the

OBC for generously donating their premises, to

David Bygott, our 'official' photographer and to

all our volunteers present on the day, plus those

who teach in the junior clubs and schools

throughout the year. Holly Kilpatrick
