Turbo Island: Street Chess bench now in use.

May 25, 2009

PRSC has put a bench on Turbo Island with chess boards on the surface of the table. People have been sitting on the walls of Turbo Island for decades, often drinking heavily. Now we have a proper bench on the Island, for the recreational use of all the Community. Abdul and Zoira, of Abdul’s Newsagents,  are in charge of the chess pieces. The pieces may be hired for just 50p, with £1 returnable deposit.chesswordpress

Part of the problem for many of the street people is that there is nothing for them to do all day, and the chess idea is part of the initiative to build a community in which all can participate. So, if you fancy a game of chess, get down to Turbo Island for some stiff competition…
