Blake is a teacher at Whitehouse Primary School in Ipswich, where he set up a chess club a year ago. If any local chess player would like to offer any support at the school, however occasional, Blake would be delighted.
Blake says, "I am a chess player from childhood but never to a very impressive standard and have played a lot on line for the past year or so. I wanted to play more in real life and found that there wasn't a club in Woodbridge. So I thought I would start one. I'm sure there will be some keen players in town. I have access to 12 or so sets and clocks which initially will be borrowed from school. I am hoping I will be able to eventually raise money to get equipment for the club. I have some interest for the opening night, but would guess numbers will start at around 10 people."
Hopefully there will be a report and photos from the new club's opening night.
