A remarkable achievement

SYBIL and Len Ornstin run bridge classes and duplicate sessions at the North Middlesex Golf Club in Whetstone, North London.

Len launched the bridge classes in the

autumn of 1999 after taking the EBUTA

teacher training course, closely follow-

ed by Sybil. The price per head for the

lessons has always been £5 including

drinks and biscuits at half time. Since

their inception of the classes, Sybil and

Len have raised over £20,000 in aid of

various charities – most of them local

to the club, which generously gives the

space to run the classes free of charge.

In addition to the bridge, purely for

fun, Sybil and Len run an annual ten-

hole golf competition known as ‘The

Bridging Golfers Society’, which is

followed by a lively party and dinner.

The photograph shows them centre

front with seventeen of the twenty-four

people who currently support the bridge

and have all become good friends. r
