Monday Afternoon Sessions Cancelled; Parking Free for Now at Red Lion

We have decided not to continue with the Monday afternoon Bridge sessions. This had been a trial to judge the level of interest: numbers have not been high enough for us to continue. There will therefore be no further Bridge sessions on Mondays. Tuesday evening continues as usual.

We have been given a last moment stay of execution by the Red Lion! Parking will remain free until the end of November. However, I would still strongly recommend finding an alternative whenever possible.  Depending on the number of tables that evening, the car park may become extremely congested.

Hope you’re having a good week.

Regards,

Jon Green.

Red Lion £5 charge for parking from this Monday/Tuesday

The Red Lion has imposed a £5 per vehicle charge to use their car-park. This will start from this Monday 27 October (giving us only one week’s notice).

If you are willing to pay this charge, then please take your keys to reception to register and pay. However, I suggest we all look for alternatives: the car-parks at Waitrose and Greys Road are both free in the evening as is parking on the street (where available). Some of you will be in a position to park at Phyllis Court or the Leander Club. Please let me know your views on this new parking charge and its impact on you.

I’m also looking at alternative venues from January next year. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. In particular, we might consider changing our evening from Tuesday to Wednesday or Thursday to provide more options on venues. Again, please let me know how this change of evening would affect you (if at all).

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend and to see you again soon!

All the best,

Jon Green.

Relaxed, friendly Rubber Bridge or Chicago – Mondays 2pm

A quick reminder that we hold a relaxed, friendly Bridge game on Monday afternoons at 2pm at the Red Lion Hotel in Henley. The session is informally hosted by group members and an ideal opportunity to get together to play enjoyable Rubber Bridge or Chicago. No need to book, just turn up – all welcome. Please come and support this if you would like it to continue. The price is £5 per session.

Please also note that the calendar on our website (“Programme” under “Lessons”) is always up to date with all the details of sessions and events.

Announcements (including cancellations or changes to sessions) and updates are posted under “Latest News”. Please keep an eye on this.

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend (perfect Bridge playing weather today!).
