Yorkshire schools visit House of Lords

Teams from three Yorkshire Schools visited Westminster on Tuesday to take part in a bridge match against the House of Lords.

Players from Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Wakefield, Fulford School in York, and Rossett School in Harrogate took part, and although the team from the House of Lords won, the scores were close and all the teams acquitted themselves well.

Prior to the match the players and accompanying staff were greeted by the Lord Speaker (as shown in the picture to the left), and were taken on a guided tour of the Palace of Westminster.

Following the visit, Mahmoud El Khatib of QEGS was interviewed on Radio Leeds about the visit, and in general about playing bridge. You can listen to the interview using the link below.
