Bridge Group Happy New Year!

On 29 November 38 people recorded the football on their TV’s and took part in Milverton Bridge Group’s Christmas Whist Drive held in the Victoria Rooms.

In keeping with our regular Bridge sessions, the emphasis was once again on fun and having a great time and, from the feedback received, we didn’t disappoint.

Thank you everyone for your continued support.

Don’t forget, the Bridge Group meet up every Wednesday 2pm to 5pm in the Victoria Rooms, no experience needed.

Bridge players

I cannot believe that a year has passed since we all last got together to play Bridge in the Victoria Rooms. However the situation is now, hopefully, changing and so the Bridge Group will re-commence playing in the Main Hall of the Victoria Rooms at 2pm on Wednesday afternoons from 19 May, subject to the Government’s agreement.

Before the last lockdown we held a couple of COVID safe trial sessions in the Main Hall. The eight ‘guinea pigs’ that attended these sessions reported back that as well as thoroughly enjoying the new COVID format, they also felt and remained safe. So when we return, and for the foreseeable future, the same controls put in place then will be adopted.

If you would be interested in playing Bridge in the VR on a Wednesday afternoons please drop me an email, send me a text or give me a call before Thursday 6 May to register your interest and for more details.
