John Smith, West Kent RC

Sadly, John Smith, West Kent RC. died, peacefully, on Sunday, May 7th.

Living at Biddenden he was ideally placed for marshalling duties and for years he was a great support at KCA events.


At the end of this racing year we have a large number of vacancies arising as the older members of the Association have decided it is time to hand over to the next generation.

  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Time Trials Secretary
  • Reliability Trial Organiser
  • Various Event Organisers
  • A number of jobs Pat Hill does

If we don't get volunteers to fill these roles then there won't be any Association and no events. Contact details for the current holders of these posts is on the Contacts page so please get in touch with them and find out what you can do to support the Association.
