David Wing - Carlisle City Cup

Ian Kay - chairman

Geoff Bell & Kathleen Bell

2nd smallest of England's ancient cathedrals (next to Oxford) but has the largest window in the "Flowing Decorated"  Gothic style  - a period of very elaborate window tracery. My new specialist subject - misericords (carved undersides of wooden choir seats) - some interesting non-religious depictions eg. a mermaid & a wife attempting to club her husband.

A City Cup event will be held at every bridge club and a Cup presented (as a gift from me) to the club. Each cup will be engraved with the name of the City plus the Winners names and hopefully this can then become an annual event.

Should the clubs (or indeed anyone) wish to donate to the Alzheimers Society this can be done via the website:
