Celebrating Jack Harris

Jack Harris at the bridge table with a cake for his 103rd birthday

Jack Harris (pictured) is a regular player at Tunbridge Wells Bridge Club. He recently turned 103! Not that you would know his ages from his bridge playing. 

Jack is such a good example of how bridge helps keep your brain well exercised and he plays regularly at TWBC with a variety of partners, at weekends in Worthing and also on holidays, with considerable success. Recently he and his wife Angela won the Slam and highest score prizes at a charity bridge day!

In his youth Jack fell in love with flying and joined the RAF at 19. He flew Lancaster bombers (550 Squadron) in World War II, meaning he must be one of the handful remaining of his generation who served our country in the war.
