On 29 April, 2022 one of the club's most loyal and loved members, Neil Raward, lost his battle after many years of fighting cancer.
Neil joined the club in 2001, and since then contributed to the club in too many ways to be counted over such a long period. Among the many roles he held at various times was both Club President and Chair of the Tournament Committee. His ability to direct large bridge sessions with grace and good humour was legendary. His warm friendly smile and zest to living life to the full was contageous.
