NEW members showed their hand in a bridge club for people in Illingworth and Bradshaw.
The first meeting was held of the area’s Local Activities (LA) group’s new bridge class and proved popular with local residents – but there is space for more. Moira Wadsworth, one of the organisers and a member of the LA group, said: “I’m also a member of the Halifax Bridge Club so I suggested we try offering bridge classes.
“It’s offered as part of the LA group but it’s open to all ages.
“We were pleased with the turnout but there’s room for more.
“Bridge is recognised as being good for mental health. It keeps the brain working and is a good social activity, to get together with other people. People can come on their own and meet others and friendships spring up from that.”
