Covid 19 Pandemic
Tues 17th March '20
Following Government advice relating to precautions around gatherings of people in Public places and especially given the age demographic of many Chess players all League and Club Chess activity has now been suspended.
The Chess Club will be closed for at least the next 4 weeks when the situation will be reviewed again.
Lewisham Chess Club apologise to all Members and guests for any inconvenience but obviously it is essential that people in higher risk categories do whatever they can to follow Government and Public Health England advice and protect themselves as best they can.
