Outdoor Chess board
22/05/2021 By David Hefferin


Work has finally started on our Outdoor Chess board, which is one of the projects that we are working on at the rear of the Lookwide Centre. The first stage is to use sleepers to both retain the land and to create seating around what will be a raised chess board in front of it. When completed the raised board will have a lid to protect it from the weather when not in use and the area will then be gravelled. Work started today to install the sleepers which will then be sanded & given two coats of decking oil to protect them from the elements. At Camp we always have a few Scouts who like a game of chess in the Mess tent, so we hope they will enjoy using this new facility when completed in the next few weeks.
