Download Club Sessions to Your Own Calendar
We have now implemented a facility to enable members to download to their personal calendar (eg on smartphone, tablet or desktop PC) all the club events for a particular night.
You will find the instructions after the bridge calendar. Read these carefully before you start, as the instructions are different for different calendar types.
This year the club will again be selling the very popular Entertainment Books. We receive a small sum from every book sold on behalf of the club and we have allocated these funds to building maintenance (boring but necessary). You can order your Entertainment Book here, and please pass the link on to any family or friends who are interested so the club gets credited with these sales too.
