John West of the Plymouth AA has been a long-term friend of Cornwall AA over many years.
This year John was awarded the John Whittaker Fellowship Award, one of CSSC’s highest honours only awarded to one member a year.
Exerpt of citation
“John joined CSSC in 1961. John is a fountain of knowledge; the Area Association committee all defer to his vast experience, as do neighbouring Areas, members of the Regional Team along with Head Office Team.
John is very conscientious and well organised; he is the glue to the Areas recent successes as Plymouth AA were recipients of the Russell Scott Trophy for 2017.
John's significant commitment and contribution to CSSC which has spanned many years, has ensured John is well respected across CSSC and the Fellowship Award is thoroughly deserved.”
We in Cornwall echo these words and thank John for all his help, support and friendship which we know will continue into the 2020s (not least because he is arranging our pantomime tickets!).
