Sally Bugden stands down as board director

We are very sorry to announce that Sally Bugden has resigned as a director of the EBU board due to increased family responsibilities.

Her contribution to the board as Chairman and Vice Chairman before that was very highly regarded and we will miss her contributions, one of which was to be to the Chairman of the charity English Bridge Education and Development (EBED).

We will be looking to appoint several trustees to the charity, English Bridge Education & Development and would welcome an indication of interest from anyone who feels they have suitable skills, experience and time. Please read on for further information.
