St Barnabas: The Playing Area

You may have been one of the 40 players who took part in the recent Bexhill Chess Congress. Did you enjoy your visit to the seaside? 

 If so, and you fancy a return before the next congress (28-29 June) then why not come down for a day of rapid chess? You can get here very easily by train or car, and take a bye in round one if you need to. We start at 10.30am and finish before 6pm.

We are raising money for St Barnabas' Church (see the playing area below) and this venue is even nearer to the station than the venue for the congress!
