Bridge club celebrates 50th anniversary

AN all day celebration will mark the 50th anniversary of St Leonards Bridge Club.

The event tomorrow (Saturday, July 21) is being held at St Mary Magdalen Church Hall, in Church Road, St Leonards from 3pm to 10pm.

Members past and present are invited to attend.

Chairman Eddie Williams said: “Bridge is the world’s most popular card game and people have enjoyed playing at the St Leonards club for half a century.

“Many older people take it up as it stimulates the brain, with research showing that regularly playing bridge improves reasoning skills and long- and short-term memory.”

The club is open to new players, young and old, from beginner to advanced level.
