Bill Prior

We regret to tell members that Bill Prior has died.     Bill was an enthusiastic bridge player and a generous supporter to the Club.     Do you remember his “if, in the next three months, you bid and make a grand slam collect your drink from the bar?” That’s one way of boosting the bar sales and providing sponsorship!


He was a very generous donor to various charities and throughout his slow decline had remained cheerful with never a grumble.

On Monday, 25th February, there will be a service at 11.30a.m. at St. Barnabas’ Church, Ashwell Road, Heaton,  Bradford, followed by a reception at The Bradford Club, Piece Hall Yard, Bradford.
