It is with much sadness that we report the death of Colin Harding on Friday. Colin was a great supporter of chess in Sussex. Having taught and run the chess club at Great Walstead for many years he was involved in the creation of Sussex Junior Chess in the early 1990s and remained very active in retirement both at the school and at our events. Our thoughts are with his family.
