SAM KHADAROO

We are very sad to announce that Sam Khadaroo passed away very suddenly last weekend.  Always a perfect gentleman, Sam played regularly at Brunton, Newcastle and Cramlington Bridge Clubs. He will be sorely missed.

It has been a particularly depressing month with the bereavements of a number of North Eastern bridge players. We are very sad to report the passing of all of the following NE players.

Elsa Gwynne, Ros Rooney, John Cook and Alex Hogg.

We extend our sympathy to their family and friends.

Congratulations to Niall Keaney &
