PRIZES were presented to the winners of a chess tournament.

Portsmouth High School hosted the Sir William Dupree and Phyllis Loe Chess Tournament. Prizes were presented to the winners in each section by headteacher Jane Prescott.

The tournament was open to all young people from Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight and surrounding areas.

Sir William Thomas Dupree was an English brewer. In the early 1890s he became manager of the Simonds brewery in Portsmouth and left to set up his own business, Portsmouth United Breweries.

He was Mayor of Portsmouth twice in the early 1900s. Councillor Phyllis Loe was Lord Mayor of Portsmouth in 1972.

The tournament was set up to encourage young people in and around Portsmouth to play chess.
