Unfortunately the negotiations concerning the excellent new venue we’d found fell through at the last minute due to a misunderstanding between the other two parties involved in the discussions. I’m still in touch in the hope that they will be able to change their minds at some point in the future.
So we’ve had to start looking again.
Yesterday, we received, totally out of the blue, an email offering us a possible venue in an excellent location. We’ll be investigating this over the next few days to see whether or not it suits our requirements.
Meanwhile, do keep on looking and making enquiries yourselves – and thanks to all who have made suggestions so far. We want to make sure we find the best available solution: a venue which will make Richmond & Twickenham a club offering great facilities for both match and social chess.
