Di sadly passed away on 8 March after a courageous fight with cancer.
She played competitive bridge for over 40 years, firstly in her native Nottinghamshire and then in her adopted county of Yorkshire when she relocated with her family, becoming a member of Bridlington Bridge Club for sixteen years – and Chairman for seven years until 2003. During this time, Di worked tirelessly on behalf of the club, maintaining standards, teaching bridge to both beginners and improvers as well as organising the very successful Bridlington Congress. She also played and
was a very popular member of Scarborough Bridge Club until her return to Nottinghamshire to be nearer her family and many friends. Nevertheless, she continued to play in Yorkshire for a time at Doncaster Bridge Club, especially enjoying competing in the Yorkshire league. Di will be sadly missed by all her family and friends and as my special friend and a bridge partner.
