Chess at the Apex in Bury St Edmunds started on Tuesday. The idea, being promoted jointly by St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Bury St Edmunds Chess Club, is to provide a free facility for playing chess, every Tuesday afternoon from 3.30 to 5.30. Car parking in Bury is free on Tuesdays after 3.00, so it's possible park adjacent to the venue and play several friendly games of chess, all at zero cost! Refreshments are available (at reasonable cost) from the coffee shop downstairs (coffee is £1.70 and tea £1.30).
This new venture should particularly appeal to retired and unemployed people, as well as youngsters after the school day ends. An article is anticipated in tomorrow's Bury Free Press, which hopefully will encourage a few more people to attend next week.
