Greetings to you all and I hope life is treating you kindly.

Mams and Dads - Ed is running juniors on Saturday. Myself and others are away at Durham Chess Congress in Darlington. If one of you could stay and work with the absolute beginners it really would help - you just need to know the moves and have a tiny bit of patience . Meanwhile we have two more assistants doing their DBS check so this really should be a one off. Please drop me a line if you can help.

I'll do a bigger summary next week but very busy this. So for now here is a link to the local press coverage of Tom Krause's visit to Poland in support of Ukraine refugees. Mine translates when I follow the link - shout if yours doesn't. And thank you Tom
