CHESS IS FUN!
Brick Lane is synonymous with a wide range of curry houses, Wood Close School which the Kray twins attended, its Sunday market, and a bagel shop where you can get breakfast before delving into the stalls. Not a place where you would expect chess to be promoted, but as our picture shows a charismatic enthusiast challenges all comers to play 3 simultaneous matches.
Our club secretary, Clive Thomas, took the challenge and as shown in the picture joined in the fun. Volunteers to undertake the same chess promotional activity in Newport’s high street would be welcome!
PS although there is no supportive evidence Clive claims he won.
