The Club is sad to say farewell to two of our longstanding members. For many years, sisters Lorraine Coates & Jo Reid have greeted all opponents at their table with friendliness & good grace. They will be missed.
An exciting event will be hosted at our club on Tuesday 28 February.
As part of her Ladies Going Places programme, Liz Sylvester has arranged a talk by Matthew Thompson, a member of the 2017 Australian Open Team. The talk will precede the usual duplicate game & is open to everyone. There is also an opportunity to play with Matthew or Peter Gill on the evening. Please see the attachment below for full details.
