Have you ever wondered about going to a board games club? No? Well, here is your chance. On Wednesdays from 4 to 5.30pm, a board games club is happening at Burngreave Library.

The club has been running for six weeks, with sixteen kids joining on the first day! The idea for a board games club came from a library volunteer meeting, and has been funded with a budget given by the lottery’s “Awards forAll” fund, which covered the this and some other library projects. The club currently has games like “Connect 4”, Chess, “Jenga” and other famous board games that children always love. The club also had refreshments thatyou could get whenever you wanted.

Children told me about their favourite games. Nathaniel said, “I love chess because of the variety of ways to play it, and the skill it requires”. Children will need to be over eight years to go without parents. Come along and get involved!
