Sad passing of Wendy Brown

Many of you will know that Wendy Brown recently died. She was a Life Master and died just as she played the best hand of her life!  She has a special place in the history of First for Bridge, as it was she who started the first bridge holidays in Menorca.  Our commiserations go to her family and the many who knew her.

We knew Wendy and her husband Arthur very well. We first met them when we went on our first Menorcan Bridge holiday in 1989.

They had been organising this holiday very successfully for many years and we later worked with them before they handed the holiday to David Boston, their director at that time.

Following David’s untimely death in 1986 we took over the holiday and gradually expanded the company during the next 18 years.

Wendy continued to come to S’Algar for many years. She was a true friend during that time and was always generous in her support and appreciation.

We are pleased that she felt the holiday which meant so much to her was in her words “A safe pair of hands”

We shall miss her.
