Shropshire Star - 20/02/2018
Kate Walker of the Telepost club says: "There is a fantastic community cafe/bar setting up a games afternoon and evening which will include chess. This will be on every first Tuesday of the month from 3.30pm to 7.30pm. The cafe/bar is called Forge Urban Revival, The Wakes in Oakengates, Telford.
"They already have some people that are interested in playing or learning chess so this would be great opportunity to get new people to join our clubs. If people could go and support it by donating any spare boards or by going along to play that would be great."
