South Shields Chess Club working in partnership with South Tyneside Libraries are now pleased to offer the opportunity to play chess on a Saturday Afternoon between 2pm and 4pm at the new Central Library in South Shields. This is a great opportunity for the general public and in particular young children to play much more casual chess in an open and friendly environment. Making chess more publicly accessible can only be a positive thing.

The Word, also known as the National Centre for the Written Word is much more than a typical library and is well worth a visit. If you find yourself in the area please drop by and see us.

I’ve decided to make it easier for Northumberland Chess members to post to the website. I have created a page called “Create an Article”. You are able to create your own article and save it as a draft on the website. After it has been checked over and approved it will be displayed on the front page.

I’ve just been to Meeple Perk, Newcastle’s first dedicated board games café. Yes, they have two chess sets! So you can be there and be square.

It’s at 89 Clayton Street in Newcastle. Drop in for cakes and coffee, or pay £3 to get access to all the board games (they have more upstairs).

A Meeple is a board game counter shaped like a person, made famous by the game Carcassonne.

Please support Rhi and Drew’s venture, because I know you like at least one board game!
