Unleash the beast

When Kate wrote to us asking for help to find would-be bridge players in Brockley, she confessed that she had already tried advertising on Gumtree, without success. We overlooked this indiscretion, for Brockley Central is a forgiving blog.

We're happy to report that we've now found four people to play with her and her housemate.

In 2005, Gumtree was sold to Ebay for "an undisclosed sum" and is now the UK's largest community classifieds site. Yet, in SE4 it kneels before Brockley Central. At least when it comes to card games.

If you're looking to connect with people in the area, get in touch - bring the rain.
