Nominations can now be made for two teaching awards which are awarded jointly by EBU and English Bridge Education and Development (EBED).
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.
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.
Are you an Amazon shopper? You can now support EBED by using their "smile" site. It works exactly in the same way with the same prices and choice of goods, but Amazon will donate a small percentage of the purchase price to support our charity.
The Young Bridge Challenge took place this weekend, Saturday 6th March with young players enjoying an afternoon of bridge, this year held online via RealBridge.
Eighty-one players – from the Isle of Wight to Glasgow – fought hard over five hours to win the sought after trophies.
