Annual Subscription:            £35 for full members. £15 for juniors.
Fees  payable to the English Chess Federation for the start of new season are: www.englishchess.org.uk/membership/membership-rates/  This is important  in order to obtain a grade.


 Church Hall, All Saints Church, Hayes Lane,  the church tower of which can be seen for miles. 

Hayes Lane is the narrow lane opposite The Sir Walter Raleigh Pub (150 yd's from venue) in the High Street. There is a car park next to the Hall but it can only be accessed via Hayes Lane. From the CP follow the steps (care needed)  through the  gate by the cottages up to the Hall on the L. There is a street map on the village web site: 



 We are also on the ECF Club map which is helpful for general directions. Remember we meet in the Church Hall  NOT the Village Hall.
