GREETINGS from Wiltshire - we are a small county with big

ambitions. In the last five years we have expanded our

competition programme so it really is 'Bridge for All'. There

are leagues, knock-outs and Sunday competitions (including

dedicated non-expert events) to suit all our members from

those who've only just finished their lessons to the Grand

Masters we hold so dear. We are all looking forward with

relish and renewed vigour to the upcoming 2017-18 season.

WE have an exciting and varied programme on County

Nights over the next few weeks. On 14 August we have a

Point-a-Board Teams. This proved very popular last summer

and so we are repeating it. The ever-popular Grand Prix

Teams starts a new season on 4 September and we'd

encourage those who haven't played in it before to dip a toe in

the water and see how much they enjoy it - there is no

obligation to continue if you don't (but we think you will!).

The County Ladies' and Men's Pairs will take place on 11

Sep and the new season of the Inter-Club Teams starts on 22

Sep.

MAURICE FREEDMAN (London): 1934-2017. Maurice,

an accountant by profession, and in the family

business for almost 35 years, was one of those larger

than life personalities whom, once you met him,

you could never forget. His generosity and

dedication to friends and family alike was second to

none. You could always rely on Maurice to do all in

his power to help and advise you, especially on

matters to do with politics and bridge!

Maurice's contribution to bridge in North-West

London, Middlesex, and Berks & Bucks was

enormous. Before the computer took over, he could
