19th December – New home!

We were made very welcome in our new home – North End Working Mens Club in Roff Avenue – decent beer and a pool table for when chess is too difficult! A Christmas all play all blitz tournament was won at a canter by Alex Taylor (although Joe would have won if his clock hadn’t been faulty?)
