Unfortunately ill-health has curtailed Megan Taft’s work as Secretary of Brierfeld Bridge Club, on the Executive Committee of the Lancashire Contract Bridge Association and on the National Club Committee.
She served as Treasurer of Brierfield Bridge Club from 1993 to 1997 and as Secretary from 1997 until 2010. As Secretary of Brierfield Bridge Club she worked tirelessly to enable the club to obtain its own premises, which were opened by Denis Robson in March 2003. The Club is flourishing and is the thirteenth best attended club affiliated to the EBU.
Megan was elected on to the Executive Committee of the Lancashire Contract Bridge Association in May 2001 and served until forced to resign last year. She took on the organisation of the three county (Lancashire, Manchester and Merseyside) green pointed weekends at Risley until they stopped in 2007, when the EBU licensing system made them uneconomic. These weekends raised much money for all three counties.
When Pay to Play was proposed and volunteers were requested for a National Club Committee, Megan again stood up to be counted until her ill-health forced her to stand down.
Although shorn of much of her responsibilities, Megan still serves on the Committee at Brierfield, giving it the benefit of her advice.
