Help promote Newcastle under Lyme junior chess club

Hi Everyone
I am attaching a flyer for the Newcastle Under Lyme Junior Chess Club. It will be held on Thursday evenings, 6 to 7 pm in Newcastle. We have started it because we realise that some schools don’t have their own club and junior players don’t have anywhere to go to play, learn or improve their chess.

Take a look at the flyer. If you could print some copies and put a couple up at school or in your local post office or email them to friends it would be really appreciated.

Please give your head teacher a copy too.

Of course, if you are a parent, chess friend, organiser or teacher reading this, any publicity you could give would be welcomed too.

Many thanks
Traci Whitfield
