Worcester Bridge Club played host to a group of

French visitors towards the end of 2019, as the

second part of their Exchange arrangement with

their partner-club in the attractive town of

Romorantin in the Loire valley.

In the space of a year a regular link has been set

up, leading to seven Worcestershire players

travelling to France in the Summer. WBC players

enjoyed much bridge, as well as some fine meals

and trips to the Château of Chenonceau and a

'dégustation' of wine at Vouvray.

The French group made a return trip in

October and it was Worcester's turn to lay on

some special treatment. There were three main

sessions of bridge including one with tea and

home-made cakes and an evening session with a

pot-luck supper and a glass of (French?) bubbly!

On the final day, Alain Gillier, the French club's

president, played with Mike Vetch, WBC

Chairman, at the Barnt Green Café Bridge event,

which raised £1,000 for Acorns Hospice and

provided a new idea for Alain to take home.

The Exchange was the brain-child of Steve

Garry, who used to play competitive bridge in

Worcestershire. Now plans begin for the next visit

to Romorantin, and a chance for friendships to be

renewed.
