EBED Welcomes new Youth Coordinator Joan Bennett

EBED is pleased to announce that Joan Bennett has joined the charity as National Youth Coordinator.

Joan - a former winner of the Tom Bradley award - has been a driving force in junior bridge for the past few decades. She brings her talent and knowledge to EBED in what has been a very difficult time for junior bridge, with schools and universities dealing with Covid for well over 12 months now.

New Chair appointed

English Bridge Education & Development is pleased to announce that Lee Guy has been appointed as a trustee of the charity. Lee will initially take the position of Vice Chair and it is intended that he will become Chair when Andy Margetts retires in the summer. The appointment represents the conclusion of the open search for EBED's next Chair announced in January. Lee will be working closely with Andy over the next few months to ensure a smooth handover.
