11/03/20 From Cornwall County Chess Association: "Over the weekend the committee have held a "meeting" by email and agreed that in the current circumstances the most responsible course of action is to suspend chess activity in Cornwall for the time being with immediate effect."

17/03/2020 In light of the current advice from the Government Bude Chess regret that we will be suspending all meetings with immediate effect. We will keep you informed on here and on our Facebook page of any developments.
