Anyone for Whist?

Sue Tompkins writes to ask if anyone would be interested in a monthly whist drive in the Village Hall. If so, please phone her on 01295 780 541 – or contact the webmaster.

Wikipedia has this to say about whist drives:

A whist drive is a social event at which progressive games of whist are played across a number of tables which are numbered or ordered into a sequence.

In it, the winning (or sometimes losing, dependent on the local custom) pair of a hand “progress” around the room, i.e. one person moves up the table sequence and one person moves down. On arriving at the new table, the next hand is played.
