the history of raunds bridge club

saxon hallRaunds Bridge Club started more than forty five years ago when a group of people went to evening classes at Raunds Manor School. The classes were run by Mr. Vic Ward and everyone was so enthusiastic they decided to form a bridge club.

Subsequently arrangements were made to meet once a week on a Thursday evening the venue at that time being St John's Ambulance rooms.

At the present moment in time one of the original members still plays at the club. She is Norma Davis to whom I am grateful for the information on this page.

Over the years we have had many members come and go due to age or having moved from/to the area but have managed to carry on and now we play at the Saxon Hall on Friday afternoons from 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm. New members are very welcome.

st johns roomsAlthough we now play at the Saxon Hall in Raunds, (a picture of which can be seen above), we didn't always have it so good! Pictured right are the St Johns Ambulance rooms which were our original, (cold in winter), venue. It has now been demolished.

If you would like to join us please telephone either Chris on 01933 314032 or Tony on 07889 468 108 who will be pleased to hear from you.
