The fund was initially set up through a bequest from the late Chris Ewers, a past Chairman of the Calshot Association and is named in honour of Jack Maynard who had the unusual distinction of serving the County Council as both a member and officer.

On retirement in 1980, he became the elected member for Fawley, where he served until 1997. During this period, he spent two terms as Chairman of the County Council: 1987-88 and 1993-94. He also had great interest in recreational matters, and was a great supporter of Calshot Activities Centre. Jack Maynard died at the age of 82 in January 2002
