Heywood Chess Congress - Sponsors

It is the local sponsors that allow this event to take place - truly magnificent support from Van Leeuwen steel tubes of Bury and Aberdeen, along with Kumon Maths & English from Heywood. Without them the Heywood Chess Congress quite simply couldn’t take place. A special thanks from all the players to them.
