A new chess club is starting in Rothbury on Wednesday.

The free weekly sessions will be held in the conference room of the village’s Queen’s Head Hotel from 7pm to 10.30pm.

It is open to anyone of any level, including beginners, but children aged between seven and 14 must come with an adult.

The club, launched by chess player Mike Christopher, has boards and clocks and is as much about the social side as it is about playing the game.
