Congratulations to Penny, who received a Dimmie Flemming Award.

Penny Riley has contributed enormously to bridge in our Cambs & Hunts region, providing not only support at School, Club and County levels, but also behind the scenes supporting the infrastructure that enables bridge in local clubs and competitions to run smoothly.

Whilst teaching atChestertonSchool, she ran a lunch-time bridge club, ferrying the team (which included two players who later represented England at junior level) to regional events.

At Club level, her many contributions have notably included duplimating for a number of clubs - about 7,000 boards per annum!

For Cambridge Bridge Club she has also provided county and venue representation, conducted historical research, and occupied the role of both Secretary and Chairperson.

For the area, she computer designed the complete layout of the once proposed Cambridge Bridge Centre. 

At County level, she is our long-standing County Membership Secretary, helping to resolve the issues raised by P2P, providing pre-dealt boards for County competitions, and also organising the annual County Swiss Pairs competition.
