Jo gave Lenzie Chess Academy its official opening last Thursday evening.
The Academy is a weekly chess club for younger players and it is hoped that following its opening evening, the club will run on a permanent basis if enough members attend.
Commenting, Jo said:
“I was delighted to open the Lenzie Chess Academy on Thursday and meet its new members. I really enjoyed being in a chess club when I was at Douglas Academy, so I am pleased that children are getting the chance to play this fun and fascinating game, which helps to develop a huge range of skills. I encourage any local children interested to come along and participate at Holy Family and Saint Ninian’s Church in Kirkintilloch every Thursday – contact Harry Marron on 07900 490889 for details.”
