The 5asideChess team has been hard at work in Bristol this month, figuring out the best way we can help the local community.
In our search for 10 venues to host our ‘connection’ days, we came across the incredible team working over at the Atrium Cafe, on the UWE Frenchay Campus.
Later in the week, after walking the wrong way up Gloucester Road, we found the Sofa Project. This brilliant social enterprise is all about reusing furniture around the city, and we learned a lot by just listening.
We also jumped over to the Green Sustainability Christmas Mingle, where 5asideChess seemed to just relax everyone a little. The pressure of conversation goes out the window when your trying to protect your queen. And when she’s gone all you can do is laugh anyway.
