ENJOYING THE GAME: Peter Allison, Steve Angus, Don Walton and Campbell Montgomery

Playing bridge is one of the most enduring and popular pastimes in the world and for over 100 years it has fascinated people of all types and from all walks of life.

It increases academic performance, lowers the risk of developing Alzheimer’s and can even improve a person’s immune system.

Playing bridge offers intellectual and social stimulation on a routine basis and because it is such an inexpensive activity it is a wonderful way to make new friendships.

Saddleworth Bridge Club, which was founded in 1964, is inviting people to join in their friendly and social sessions in comfortable surroundings to play duplicate bridge.

They boast almost 50 members of various playing levels, from beginner to experienced. If you are a beginner, you need only know the basics (point count, simple bidding, and playing of the hand).

Steve Angus, who has been chair of the club for ten years, said: “We pride ourselves on being a friendly club rather than just competitive and welcome anyone to join us.”

Steve is joined on the club’s committee by secretary Maureen Quinn, treasurer Brian Jowle and other helpers.

The club meets at the Masonic Hall, 138 High Street, Uppermill, every Monday from 7pm-10pm. There is ample parking. Table money (members) £2.50, annual subscription £5. If you don’t have a partner, contact the club and they will try to arrange one.
