Telford new venue
With effect from tomorrow, Telford Chess Club are moving to:
The Royal British Legion, Station Road, Dawley, Telford TF4 2NW
Club night will continue to be Wednesdays at 7.30pm, when it will otherwise be fairly quiet. There is wheelchair access in the form of a ramp leading to a side, and lounge bar, where we will probably usually play, function room, where we will play otherwise, and toilets are all on one level. Ample parking adjacent on a large free, well lit public car park.
They don’t usually open before 7.30, but we can get in beforehand, but won’t be able to buy drinks until then. They’ll want us out by about 11.00, but that shouldn’t be a problem.
The main reasons for the move are that the Mallard have recently put some sofas and armchairs in the room we use, limiting our capacity to stage more than one match at a time, and the lighting was inadequate for continued studying the chess board. The new venue addresses both those issues.
