Bob Baker RIP

It is with great sadness that we report the death of our dear friend Bob Baker on Saturday after a short illness.

Bob and Jacky have been an integral part of the First for Bridge family for many years. Arena Travel took over the business in 2012 and along with others Bob and Jacky offered great advice and support to ensure we maintained the high bridge standards of First for Bridge. They have been very popular with customers who booked any trip they led and Bob will be greatly missed by us all.

We extend our sincere condolences to Jacky and the family.

The family have asked not to receive phone calls at this difficult time. We would be pleased to gather your memories and condolences and pass them to Jacky in due course. Please address any messages to

We would like to introduce The Bob Baker Memorial Challenge Cup next year in honour of Bob’s memory.
