- Jan Plumb
Probably, by now everyone has heard of the death of our Chair, Jan Plumb. She suffered a heart attack on boxing day, which was later followed by a stroke. We were all shocked and saddened by the sudden loss of someone who seemed to have so much energy, and did so much for the club; and our wishes go out to her sons, and others in her family. Her funeral service took place on at St Peter's, Crown Hill, on 9th February. About 25 club members were amongst the mourners, and some then went on to the overflowing commital at the crematorium.
- The Jan Plumb PlayDay
In memory of Jan and in recognition of her wishes to bring the full spectrum of club members closer together, this event will held on Saturday 25th March, beginning at 10.15, with one session before lunch, and one after. It will be a handicapped pairs competition, so that novices have a better chance of holding their own against more experienced players. We hope that one or both of Jan's sons will be there at the end to present the new 'Jan Plumb Cup' to the winners. More information and a sheet for pairs to reserve their places on the club's notice board. Please come.
- Barbara Emerson
Very sadly we must also report the death in early February, in St Luke's Hospice, of Barbara Emerson, after an extended illness. Barbara was known to many members as an enthusiastic player and a committed teacher of bridge. She had returned to her birthplace of Plymouth a few years ago after a life spent mainly in the Midlands. Our sympathy goes out to her children, the grandchildren of whom she was so proud and the rest of her family.
