Membership Secretary’s Report

Five new members have joined this quarter, this includes three junior members: Zehra from Hove, Erica from Dingwall and Jose Ignacio, from Guatemala.

Married couple John and Tessa Fullwood from Camberley, Surrey have joined with John a visually impaired member and his wife joining as an associate member.


Sadly George Foster who attended some of the recent OTB tournaments has passed away after becoming ill in December with Covid 19. Our thoughts go out to his partner Jadwiga Kelly and friend Mark Longstaff.

Mark Hague.

Editor’s note: Just before going to print, more tragic news reached us. We have also lost our friend, Antoine Reeves, who slipped away peacefully on the 8th of April. There will be a fitting tribute to him in the August issue.
