External Relations

Toby Manning

The aim of getting Go as well known with the British public as chess is a long way off; but that is the direction in which we are aiming. We do this by talking to the press and radio and TV with the aim of encouraging coverage of Go and Go events, and by lobbying local and national politicians. The committee is always looking at new ways to get publicity.

We are also represented from time to time at appropriate exhibitions and fairs and we maintain an archive of books, magazines and publicity material for these purposes.

The linked pages contain material to assist with the creation of press releases and other publicity material.
