No, it’s not a surprising change to the fixture list.
Starting on January 15th the club will be open on a Friday night for the playing of board and card games. The events are open to the whole of the local community, to provide an alternative from going to the pub (especially for those doing ‘Dry January’) or staying at home. The events will be free to enter but attendees will be encouraged to buy drinks (hot, soft or alcoholic) in order to cover the costs of opening up.
You can bring along any game(s) you want to play or just turn up and see what other people have brought along. If you think the gaming world ends at Monopoly and Jenga you’re in for a real treat!
