Welcome to Noosa Bridge Club.

Kitchen Helpers Needed: We are looking for two people to assist us at the end of our events in the kitchen clean up, starting with our Christmas Party on the 10th December. We are after a couple of energetic, self starters and they must be able to work unsupervised. We will pay $50 per hour for the right people. Ideally they will come in for around 2 hours at the end and take over the washing up, clearing tables, loading and unloading the dishwasher etc. We thought some of our members might have teenage grandchildren that would be interested. If anyone knows someone they think could be suitable please contact one of our committee members. [posted Tue 23-Nov-21]


How to add your Covid - 19 Certificate to the Check in Qld App: Soon we will have to show proof of our vaccination status wherever we go. The easiest way is to add your Covid 19 Vaccination Certificate to the Check in Qld App on your phone and this article will show you how. ( note, I believe some people have had to delete the Qld Check in app first and then re install it as they could not do an update) See more... [posted Sun 21-Nov-21]


Charity Day: Ann Duley, Group Co-Ordinator and Committee Chairperson of Sunshine Coast Parkinson's Support Group was in attendance today as we dedicated our table fees, monies raised from the silent auction, raffle ticket money and cash donations to this well deserved group. The amount raised today was just under $2000 with more to come which is a fantastic result. A very big thank you to our talented artist Helen Lawson for her generous donation of a portrait to be painted of the winner of the silent auction, which was Sandi Hoskins. Congratulations Sandi and to all our members who gave so generously. Thank you to Ted for his delicious cake and to Isabel for orgainising the event. Helen and Sandi are pictured on the right with two of our raffle winners, Doug and Louise, below. [posted Sun 21-Nov-21]
