Monthly Gaming at the Shop 2nd Sunday of every month
By Sally
Starts at 12 noon 'til late.

We have plenty of tables for playing board games and card games, and a bit of wargames space too. New players welcome as well as our normal friendly regulars, and a large games library on site. The Burton Bridge Brewery is just over the road for those who want a pint with their game, tea and coffee are free at the shop and Aldi and Family Bargains are close by for those who want snacks.

Parking at the supermarket is still restricted on Sundays and the council car parks still charge, but there is plenty of legal on road parking and other good alternatives nearby, ask for advice.

Spring Harvest Holidays Board Games Week
By mattyoung27
Established in 2013, the Board Games Holiday in France is going from strength to strength, with about 40 gamers bringing about 250 games to enjoy for a whole week in the September sunshine. The 2017 dates are 11-18 September, making it very cheap indeed (sorry if you're a teacher!) to share a mobile home with friends, or join in with a larger group in a luxury villa. Featuring open play, tournaments and optional Christian programme, you'll wish it were longer than just a week! Find more details, and photos, at www.springharvestholidays.com/board-game-week, or ask me if you have any questions!
