At long last, there is another junior chess club in Suffolk. Martlesham Junior Chess Club held their first meeting last Saturday, when 12 children turned up.
This is the brainchild of Dagne Ciuksyte, who is assisted by Graham Moore. With two strong players available to coach the children, there are high hopes for this new club.
To assist this start-up, Bury Knights JCC has provided six boards and sets for their use. These were handed over recently to Graham Moore – see photo left.
Dagne and Graham are hoping that there will be as many as 17 attending next Saturday.
The club meets at the Scout Headquarters on Martlesham Heath (IP5 3PL), from 14.00 to 15.30 every Saturday. For more information, contact Dagne on 07574 936810 or email her.
