Contract bridge, Tuesdays from 1-3:30 p.m. at the White Rock Community Centre and Sundays from 1-4 p.m. at the Kent Street Centre, is for advanced players. Partner’s Bridge, on Fridays from 6-10 p.m., is also at the Kent Street Centre and welcomes all advanced-level players.

• Kent Street Activity Centre is looking for volunteers to assist in a few different capacities beginning in September. Computer instructors are needed to teach entry-level classes to older adults using Windows 10.
