Happy 100th birthday Hylda Townsend!

We are delighted to wish a Happy 100th Birthday to our Vice President Hylda Townsend who was born on 7th March 1913. She is a doyenne of bridge, the game she has played almost all her life.

As well as being a keen player, Hylda is a committed and capable bridge administrator. At national level, she has been an EBU Vice President and a member of the EBU Tournament Committee, and was the recipient of a Dimmie Fleming award.

England win Camrose Trophy

England extended their lead in the second half of the home international series in Ireland and finished 11.5VPs ahead of the home team. They kept things exciting by losing the penultimate match 22-8, but ended with a resounding 25-0 win over the CBAI team.

Congratulations to all the team: David Gold, Tony Forrester, Andrew Robson, Alexander Allfrey, Tom Townsend and David Bakhshi, with NPC Simon Cope, and of course the team from the first weekend back in January.
