52 players attended the annual bridge luncheon held at Kirby Muxloe Golf Club.
Much chatter and laughter ensued as participants arrived for tea or coffee and to select their bridge table.
After a warm welcome from the Lady Captain of Kirby Muxloe, Anna Taylor, and our Lady President, Helen Buckingham, bridge commenced at 11.00am.
A two-course lunch was served at 12.30pm before players returned to their bridge, which was planned to finish at 3.00pm.
Our thanks go to Jane Fletcher of Kirby Muxloe who was the Director of Bridge for the day.
Participants felt that the final bridge session was a bit rushed, so it was agreed that next year players would arrive 30 minutes earlier to allow sufficient time for the game and lunch with a more relaxed end to the bridge. This should allow everyone to depart by 3.30pm and arrive home before dark.
The raffle which had a Christmas treat theme, raised £137 for the County Junior Girls. Many thanks to all everyone for your generosity. Anita of the County and all the junior girls are very appreciative of the funds raised.
Finally on behalf of our Lady President, Helen and the committee, thank you to the staff at Kirby Muxloe who made us so welcome.
We look forward to seeing you all at Scraptoft golf club on 9th November 2023.
