Coaching day at Barming primary school - Sunday 10th January

Wishing everyone a happy new year.

To get our chess off to a great start for 2016, our first event is the coaching day, which is this coming Sunday 10th January.

The doors open at 9.30am, with the start time for the first coaching session at 10.00am.

We are delighted to use Barming primary school again, it is one of our long-standing coaching day venues.

However, please remember that children must be supervised at all times when not in the coaching sessions. This includes not allowing children into the classrooms alone, being respectful of all school areas and equipment, and ensuring that outside play is in the playground, not on the fields and grassy areas.

Hot drinks and snacks will be available on the occasion from the KJCA catering, which has been expertly organised by Samantha Metcalfe as one of her last events as catering manager. If any of the parents/carers coming along would like to help out with catering on the day, please do speak to Samantha.

We are also keen to hear from anyone who can help with the role of catering manager for our upcoming tournaments, again you can either speak directly to Samantha, or email  or
