“The Association is saddened to report on the death of Michael (Mick) Collins one of its most popular Presidents. Many bowlers in Kent and beyond will mourn his passing and the loss of a true friend whilst paying tribute to his outstanding contribution to our sport.
Mick over many years is synonymous with his club Marden where no challenge was too great, from management of the green to Chairman of the club. Over many years the local leagues have much to thank Mick with him having held all Offices, along his commitment to Mote Park Indoor. Mick has always been a wise councillor and respected in all he said and did.
Having had the experience of being Indoor President Mick joined the Association’s presidential ladder becoming its President in 2012. His popularity among the bowling fraternity was without doubt as was his quick wit and ability to hold an audience.
Our sport has lost “one of the best” and a great ambassador. Our thoughts remain with Carol and the family at this difficult time.”

KCBA Chairman Geoff Chapman

The funeral details are:
12.30 pm on the 19th. December at All Saints Church, High St Staplehurst TN120AX, then afterward at Marden Village Hall at 1.45 pm.
