This building is owned by the Lands Department who have leased it to Marine Rescue, with instructions to accommodate the Bridge Club.

Air Conditioning News

The electricity to one zone at Henley wasn't working. This has been fixed and the air conditioners are operating - probably no better than they've ever been, but trying hard.

*** HEAT WAVE ***

The air conditioning at Henley Community Centre is not working. With
soaring temperatures predicted to continue tomorrow, please be aware
that the hall is incredibly uncomfortable. If you played on Monday,
you'll understand.

We have plenty of fans and Peter would love to see you, but if you
feel you can't live without air conditioning, you might considering
not coming to bridge tomorrow.

Obviously, we can't call everyone. If your partner doesn't have e-
mail, perhaps you could call him or her to pass on the warning.
