Palm Court, Scarborough Nov. ‘23

Once again Fred’s mystery tours are looking for punters!

I am booking the Palm Court Hotel again as it seemed to work very well last year.
This time for four nights (as I could get a good deal!) but there will be no bridge or whist on the day we depart.

Dates are from Sunday November 19th to departing on Thursday 23rd.

As I’ve said before this is a holiday and non bridge partners are welcome. Also please don’t feel obliged to play every session if you want a break.

If you would like to join us or get more information please email me at or phone 07968727815.

Individual final

Congratulations to Andy Milner who obliterated the remaining finalists with a fine performance of over 70%. Very well done.

Thanks also to Barry and Leslie who as you can imagine hosted us wonderfully with a delicious tea.

Also to Dave who tried to keep us in order!


Who’s nicked the sweater!!!

Has anyone picked up a bluey green round necked M&S sweater last Thursday.

Chris Pickering is feeling very cold! Well, actually, he’s not too bad because he’s got another v-necked sweater that someone else had left behind.

Would the culprit please either contact him direct or failing that you can call me on (07968) 727815.

Thanks, Fred

Curry Bridge

Thank you to all of you who supported the curry bridge last night. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves. It certainly went to making a fun evening.

Also to Dave Williams for directing, teaching and generally keeping us in order. (Well other than me!)

I thought the food was especially good with plenty of seconds. (Doctor David!)

Thank you all,


Annual Dinner, 28th April

Just in case you didn’t see my previous blog which wasn’t immediately obvious I am composing a second!

The Bassingham Bridge Club Annual Dinner is to be held at The Oaks, Whisby using the golf club’s function room on the 28th April at 7pm.

The price is £25 per head and partners or spouses are very welcome.

You will have to give me your menu choices beforehand if you don’t want to go hungry!

Hopefully I will be playing on Thursday where some of you can pay me (or preferably Jayne if you want it recorded!) and maybe give me (Jayne again!) your menu choices.

A quick review of the menu:-

Pate or soup, vegetable I think.
Chicken, salmon or a Mediterranean vegan tartlet.
Chocolate brownie or raspberry cheesecake.

For the rest of you lucky enough to avoid me you can let me know, preferably by emailing me at or phoning 07968727815. (Text might be better!)
