Organiser Bev Jones sends thanks to everyone who played in the leagues this year. "Roll on next year", says Bev. And all the players and the club thank Bev for all her hard work, and keeping it all going through the covid ups and downs. The short mat brought in over £2,600 to club funds over the winter. Together with the money from bridge, whist, rummikub, scrabble, and table tennis, this income makes a substantial contribution to keeping the club open for members to enjoy during the winter by paying the heating, electricity, and other bills.
