At the County's Annual General Meeting (on Saturday 18th November), JJ who is now in his 89th year, was presented with his Merit Award by the Kent County President Geoff Chapman. JJ joined Kearsney in 1968 after a brief spell at Tilmanstone B.C..

JJ has held many offices whilst at Kearsney , he is a Past President, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Committee member and Tournament Secretary. In later years he has taken on the role of the club's Publicity Officer and has kept Kearsney's name to the forefront on a regular basis in the local press with his reports and photographs on the club's activities. JJ was made an Honorary Life member of Kearsney B.C. a number of years ago in recognition of his work and dedication to the club. JJ gained his coveted County Badge in 1989, qualifying in the un-badged singles and regularly represented the County in friendly fixtures. In the winter months JJ runs and captains Kearsney teams at the Folkestone Indoor Bowls Centre in the Herald League and Birdies Triples League.
