Over the Pandemic the society was required to adapt to lockdown and provide other means for members to socialise and play games. This came in the form of a discord server that developed over the sixteen months we were unable to open.
During the time we were unable to meet in person four of our regular roleplay games adapted to the change and began to play through the server with the assistance of astral table top (A browser based virtual table top). A further six long form games came into creation during the pandemic with various short form games also springing up on occasion. Fun not being restricted to table top we also saw the community take part in the Inktober 2020 drawing event, Nanowrimo’s writing event and online party games.
We are proud of what the Discord community has created over the difficulties of lockdown and as a society want to continue to support its growth. If you have not checked out our discord server please see the link below
It was nice seeing old and new faces this weekend and
hearing everyone’s positive response to the changes within the club room.
There is still a long way to go with sorting the shelving
and clearing some of the old furniture, but as we could see from those visiting
the effort is certainly worth it. On Saturday we saw the first wargames hitting
our redesigned central area and roleplay return to the round table. Speaking
with members we look forward to seeing old games return and new games start up.
If you have an interest in running something within the
society please let us know. Our opening times currently aren’t concrete so we
are willing to give some flex on opening to make things work for you.
As not everyone could make their way into club this weekend I wanted to share some photos with you showing off some of the space. We look forward to seeing you in the club soon

With the reopening of the club we want to speak shortly of
the continuing Covid-19 response. We as a society are aware that even with
reducing regulations the world and local area is still living through a
pandemic. In consideration of this we ask all members be respectful of other’s
concerns regarding the pandemic and illness as a whole. We are aware some
members are at high risk to the virus and wish them to feel as safe as
We ask all attending the club to sign in and use the NHS app

The committee met on Saturday 31st July to review the current process of the club room’s refurbishment. We are happy to announce that the club room will be able to reopen to games from the 7th August.
We thank all club members for their patience while the works were being completed.
We have been hard at work adding to the club new storage solutions with the aim of increasing the space availible and reducing the sound polution betweeen the different gaming areas
Thank you to all members who helped with the mammoth list of jobs that needed completing; cleaning of the club, carpet fitting, building the new units, just to name a few ways members have helped. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without your help.
We still have to organise the games, book, mini’s etc into their new homes, but with the larger projects now complete we feel it is the right time to reopen the space to what we do best, gaming. We just ask for your continued patience while this is completed over the next few weeks.
Should you wish to move your game to the club or start a new game in our space please contact us here, through our discord or by speaking to one of our committee members directly.
