1933 - 2019
Henry was a member of the EBU and
Leicestershire CBA for around 50 years, and only
retired as the Treasurer of the LCBA in 2018 after
30 years in the post.
His main club was the Spencefield. In 1969-70,
his team won Division 4 of the League. In the
1974-75 season, Henry shared in celebrating his
team winning Division 3 and then Division 2 in
the 1975-76 and 1988-89 seasons. The team then
oscillated between Divisions 1 and 2 of the League
winning Division 2 on three other occasions. The
team's most recent win was in the 2005-06 season.
It was sadly disbanded after the 2008-09 season.
Henry and his wife Beryl were also members of
the Leicester Bridge Centre, and after its closure,
the Blaby Club.
Henry also enjoyed success in many of the
events organised by the LCBA, and represented
Leicestershire in the Midlands Counties League.
Henry's most notable contribution to the work
of the Leicestershire Contract Bridge Association
was most definitely his 30 year stint as Treasurer.
He was instrumental in ensuring that the
association operated within its means and kept a
healthy balance of funds. In 2009, very deservedly,
Henry was awarded Life Membership of the LCBA
in recognition of this service.
