We are sad to learn of the death of Derek Rue. Derek represented England's Senior team in the European Championships and World Olympiad in 2004, and was also a silver medallist in the 2001 European Bridge Pairs Championship.
He received a Dimmie Fleming Award in 2010 for his service to county bridge, having served on the Gloucester CBA Executive Committee for 40 years. He was also a founder member of Cheltenham Bridge Club - the seventh most visited in the country in 2017/18.
Please see the Cheltenham BC website for details of the funeral.
