Hastings chess loses a great friend

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Con Power, Director of Hastings International Chess Congress from 1983 – 2015.  Con had been ill for some time and faced this with considerable courage and dignity.  He died at home two days ago with his family by him.  His funeral will take place at 12pm on Wednesday 11th May at St. Mary Star of the Sea Roman Catholic Church, High Street, Old Town, Hastings.  Con’s wishes were that there should be no wearing of black, no flowers and that all are welcome to attend.  Following the service all are welcome to gather at the Church Hall for refreshments when there will be time to share memories and celebrate Con’s life.
