INFORMATION
Len Handley

We are sad to report the death of Len Handley. He was KCBA secretary for at around 5 years, until Elizabeth (his wife) and he moved to Bucks in 1986. He was an EBU Board member 1984 to 1987. He won 6 KCBA cups including four with Elizabeth. Nationally he was runner up in Silver Plate in 1981 with Bill Kember, Malcolm McBain & Tim Llloyd-Williams. He also finished 4th in Harold Poster in 1986 with John Murrell. They used to play regularly at West Kent (now part of TWBC) & Sidcup & other clubs in that area. We send our condolences to his family.
