Our new Training Day Tour continued this week, as we followed up the inaugural date in London with a return to Manchester.
This was our first training day in Manchester since November 2018. The venue was the Cedar Suite of the Broadoak Community Centre in Ashton-under-Lyne, which is also the venue of David Hardy's chess clubs.
My excellent friend David, was of course, instrumental in helping the Manchester training day move from idea to reality and he was there all day, making absolutely sure we all had plenty of tea and biscuits.
Staying with culinary matters for the moment, we must make note of Catherine Lloyd's magnificent contribution of cakes, which deserved their own stand.
