Following the donation of six chess sets and boards to Woolpit Primary School back in March (see here), another school has taken up the offer. Bob Jones visited Abbot’s Hall Primary School in Stowmarket, where teacher Chris McGrath, pictured right, took possession of another six sets. Chris has plans to start up a school chess club that will meet every week.
These chess sets have been provided by the Bury Knights Junior Chess Club, who purchased 20 new sets last year and have recently taken back ownership of a further 12 sets that had been on semi-permanent loan to the Bury St Edmunds Chess Club.
Any other school in West Suffolk that is keen to establish a chess club should contact Bob.
