Last Tuesday saw Crewe’s giant chess set brought out onto the Town Centre square. Crewe Town Council leader Simon Yates and Cheshire East councillor Chris Andrew played out a match watched by several members for Crewe Chess Club.
Dave Price, chairman of Crewe Chess Club, said: “Cheshire East Council provided us with a grant towards the initial set up costs of the club and the purchase of equipment and it’s great that the club can now also take advantage of this equipment, which is available for community use. It’s a great asset for the town centre and one which we hope to use much more as the weather gets warmer. We hope other groups like ourselves will also utilise it.”
“The membership of our club is currently building and we are always on the lookout to get more people involved, whatever their age or chess ability. Our club meets every Wednesday from 6.30pm at the Amalgamated Anglers Club in Beech Street, Crewe.”
