Weavers Court in Alnwick.

Alnwick Bridge Club is on the move after holding its weekly meetings in the same place for almost two decades.

After holding its events at the Lindisfarne Annexe for the past 18 years, Tuesday night’s Christmas party was the last meeting in that particular venue.

From its first meeting of the new year, on Tuesday, January 3, the club will meet each Tuesday evenings at 6.45pm at Weavers Court, off Weavers Way, in Alnwick.

Alnwick Bridge Club is the most northerly English Bridge Union affiliated club, as the Berwick-upon-Tweed club is affiliated to the Scottish Bridge Union.

Teams from the club play in a local league and in competitions.

From time to time, the whole club takes part in the Simultaneous Pairs when clubs throughout the country play the same cards on the same day.

In September this year, Sue Lant and Sheila Brown gained the club’s best-ever result in the British Autumn Pairs, coming 11th nationally out of 715 pairs.

The club has members of all abilities and although competitive duplicate bridge is played, it is a very friendly club and new members and visitors are always made to feel very welcome.

Any bridge players who would like to give stimulating and exciting duplicate bridge a try or would like to join the club are invited to an open night on Tuesday, January 17, at 6.45pm in the new meeting place at Weavers Court – no partner needed.
