The Sussex Junior Chess AGM normally takes place at our April training day, but was postponed this year due to the Covid-19 restrictions. It will be rescheduled at the earliest opportunity once face to face events are considered acceptably safe.
We are taking a short break but will be back commencing Tuesday 7th July – sessions will be available to book soon. It is likely that sessions will continue until the end of term then break for the summer, resuming in September.
