We are also updating the website and creating a new area for our charity work as it is an important part of the club, who we are and what we do. I am also creating galleries and copying across some legacy content from Facebook. So there will be some blank pages as I work on them.


Any feedback on the website is welcome!

Fundraising update!

We’ve raised around £550 in our first 6 months! for Herefordshire Mind. Which is amazing, more importantly we’ve had about 14 or so amazing game sessions, with zero drama, lots of laughter, giggles, mild swearing and in game terms fun decisions, close defeats and awesome victories.

I am really proud of what we have achieved, we have a friendly accessible club which I know has brought a lot of joy to people. Do let me have any feedback good or bad. (I’d love a few snippets for our website)

May 18th is our mega charity day https://www.facebook.com/events/643787312664398/

One month until our mega charity day! 100% of proceeds goes to Herefordshire Mind

One month to go! The last three events raised £500 and we are on target to double that this year with your help. It is a great cause and will be a nice day out. 100% of proceeds go to charity with all costs met by donations or the club members.

New gamers can be introduced to the wonderful world of gaming and maybe meet new friends and discover a new hobby.

Established gamers can enjoy 12 hours of relaxed gaming with a large games library to enjoy as well as friendly teachers to introduce them to new gamers.

Families can enjoy games together or play separate games in a safe environment.

There will be raffles, auctions, cake stall as well as onsite café. There will be side events in the form of giant Tsuro and … **redacted** as well as informal quizzes to enjoy.

The Core is wheel chair accessible, spacious and well lit so it should be a great day out for a great cause.

Please share the event if you can (and like this post), Facebook controls and limits what is seen so sharing is key. Also do drag your friends along it is a great event, great cause and should be good fun for all.
