Bridge Classes for 2019-20

I am running the bridge classes listed below, starting in September 2019 . Classes continue into 2020 with a Winter term in the New Year, and then a Spring term after Easter. The cost for all my classes includes tea/coffee. After classes conclude there is the 'Summer Play' sessions for existing students, which then runs until September 2020 at Martlesham.


Locations

The Martlesham Community Centre is on Felixstowe Road behind the big Tesco store at Martlesham, near Ipswich. There is a large car park (no charges). Sited very close to the A12, this location is very convenient for Felixstowe, Ipswich and Woodbridge areas, and beyond. The postcode is IP12 4PB.

The Ufford Sports & Social Club Pavilion is on The Avenue in Ufford - on the site of the football ground, tennis courts and children's play area. The postcode is IP13 6ES - but please note that this postcode is shared with properties on 'Parklands', which is a different turning off Yarmouth Road, and is probably where a 'Satnav' will take you!
