The Autumn Meeting which was planned to be held on Monday 7th September at The Leicestershire Golf Club for the Renee Shipman Trophy was cancelled as a result of Covid 19 restrictions.
It is very disappointing that this trophy event planned for 2020 has had to be cancelled. The social distancing restrictions and local Leicester lockdown have resulted in this decision being made, albeit with regret, by the committee.
The Bridge Drive planned for Thursday 5th November at Kirby Muxloe Golf Club has also been cancelled for 2020. It is not feasible to maintain social distancing and to observe safe handling practices whilst sharing playing cards with other bridge players at this time.
It is hoped that events planned for 2021 will be able to proceed as the world gets used to a "new normal" in a Covid 19 environment.
