History of our Section

The Kent Section was started in the mid 1980's by John Starkey. The Surrey Section's Coordinator was Ray Law. Ray used to arrange ride outs starting from Westerham for both the Surrey Section and Kent Section members to attend.

As time went on John arranged for the Kent Section to meet at The Portobello Inn, West Kingsdown, on the second Wednesday of each month, along with Surrey members Mike Holloway, Graham Blunden, Dave Jupp and Colin Day.
Dave Jupp and Colin Day are still regular attendees at our monthly meetings, but sadly John Starkey tragically lost his life in July 2001 after an accident on the M20.

With John no longer around Tony Harmer offered to be the local Coordinator in order to keep the Kent Section running.

John Starkey had been very keen to have a VJMC presence at our local South-East Motorcycle Show at Detling.

We achieved many successes at this show, winning Best Club Stand several times and also individual class awards. This was only achieved with the full support of the section members.

More recently Paul Turk took up the role of Coordinator for the Kent Section
and for the past few years has arranged many events and ride outs that have been very successful.
The meetings are now held on the first Thursday of each month.

The Kent Section will continue to move
forward with your valued support.
