The Wrong Jacket!

Somebody at Bridge Club last night mistakenly took the wrong jacket, leaving their Jack Pack waterproof behind. Would the person concerned please contact Milly to arrange to return her jacket. Her email address is:



Tower Bridge, Christmas Closure and Panto!

First two reminders:

1. Bridge this Thursday – Dec. 1st – will be in the Tower. (The WI are using the Main Hall)

2. There will be no Bridge Club sessions on Tuesday 27th, Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th December. Normal Bassingham Bridge Club sessions will resume on Tuesday 3rd January.


Oh yes it is…… ! ………nearly……… time for the Village Panto. It has become a tradition over the years that a group from Bassingham Bridge Club goes to watch the Annual Performance. This year it is The Little Mermaid, on Friday January 27th. If you would like to go along, tickets are £9 which I will be able to buy on Friday 4th January. Since there will be no Bridge Club on Thursday 29th December I will need orders and payment by Thursday 22nd December – our Christmas Bridge Evening. You can book your tickets by replying to this email or when you next see me.


Tower Date Correction

The WI will be using the Hammond Halll on the 1st December, not as previously stated, on the 8th. So therefore bridge on the 1st Dec. will take place in the Tower. The 6th October date is unchanged. Apologies for this error.

Fifth Thursday & Bridge in the Tower

As this Thursday is the fifth Thursday of this month, people who have recently learnt to play bridge are encouraged to come along. The pace of play will be slower than normal and experienced players will be ready to encourage and give advice.

A reminder that on the 6th October and the 8th December the WI will be using the Main Hall, so bridge will take place in the Tower Room. As there is less space in the Tower, some teams arrange League Matches on these evenings.

Ravens Hall Hotel bridge break

Monday 24th April 2023

Following on from booking our November bridge break in Scarborough Jayne and I also found a very nice venue to play at in April.

At the moment I would mainly like an indication from those of you who would like to come, again it is for three nights starting on Monday 24th April through to Thursday 27th.

This is aimed at more experienced players but non-playing partners are welcome.

As a rough guide the break will cost about £300 per person all in but there may be a surplus for single rooms.

Please reply to Please let me have yours and your partners name and any particular room requests.

A deposit of £75 will be due by 1st November when I have to pay the hotel. If you do feel a need to pay me, my bank details are:-

Curry Evening Wednesday October 19th

To book your place and for any further enquiries, contact the new Social Secretary, Fred Myers at or at a bridge evening.
