Request from previous Mayor of Bournemouth pdf icon PDF 291 KB

The Charter Trustees will be advised of a request received from a previous Mayor of Bournemouth to release two chess cups currently held by the Charter Trustees for a competition run by the Bournemouth & District Chess League.


Research has identified that they were purchased by Sir George Meyrick Snr and presented to the winners of an annual chess competition by Sir George Meyrick Snr and The Mayor of Bournemouth. Whilst these cups do not have the historic heritage of other assets, we do not have definitive confirmation of ownership.  They were purchased in 2009 for £200 each.


The Charter Trustees views are sought in respect of this request.
