Membership Secretary’s Report
I am delighted to welcome three new life members to our association. They are Marilyn Bland from Texas, Olle Engström from Sweden and Bittor Ibanez from London.
We also have new members Adara Kabara from Chadwell Heath Essex and Simon Highsmith from Hornsey London joining for five years.
Estelita Clayton, AKA Nene, from Belper, Derbyshire has joined us for one year membership. Nene is very popular and helpful in the online Skype chess community so it is great to have her as a member of our association. It does seem that the Covid pandemic has helped to increase our membership as people have more free time on their hands to play the wonderful game of chess!
