Our lovely Isabel Buckland has sent me a short, but interesting story this month: "I first started to play bridge about 14 years ago, on a Tuesday night with Anne Small, helping beginners understand the game!
I was born in England, but because of my husband's work, we lived many years in Dallas, Texas. I have two sons, one who lives in the U.S. and one in Narrabeen.
When my husband retired we decided to relocate to Australia, to be near my son here. My husband died 5 years ago, so bridge has been very helpful for me to settle well and also I have made many friends at the Bridge club."
Isabel has never been idle. Although she may not have held an official position withmthe Bridge Club, she quietly did a voluntary role in the Kitchen, when required.
