With much regret, due to the UK government announcement today on new local Covid-19 restrictions across seven North East local authorities, we have had to cancel this year's Northumberland Chess Congress.
We wish to express our thanks to all those who showed their support by entering the event in advance. As previously stated, we will now begin the process of refunding all those who have paid their entry fees to ensure that no one is left out of pocket by the cancellation.
Thank you once again.
Mick Riding, Entries Secretary, and Lara Barnes, Congress Organiser
