No Trumps at the House of Lords!

Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School students took on some of the sharpest minds in the country when they played bridge at the House of Lords.  The four students pitted their wits against the Lords’ and MPs during an amazing afternoon of bridge.

The QEGS team, Anna Hutton, James Burman, Peter Michell and Matthew Birchall were accompanied by Ms Dale and Mr Hull, and driven by Mrs Nathan.  The group also enjoyed a tour of the House, and a delicious lunch on the sunny riverside terrace before the tournament.  During the visit, Horncastle students, Anna and James were awarded prestigious Platinum English Bridge Union prizes, whilst Peter and Matthew gained Bronze awards, in recognition of their ability as bridge juniors.  All students (and teachers) were delighted to be presented with a pack of cards each, detailing their special visit.

QEGS Horncastle has a thriving bridge club, which meets every Tuesday between 4-5.30; members range from beginners to seasoned players.  Everyone is welcome; currently there are approximately 12 members but the club is always on the look-out for more!
