Join us and help make Kent a better place. And have fun - we do!

Unfortunately, the Association has been unable to participate in the Blessing of the Waters service in 2020 due to the pandemic. However, the service took place 'on-line.' For a video, please click HERE.

The Association has donated £1000 to support the Battle of Britain Memorial.

This national memorial to the men who fought the Battle of Britian is located on top of the white cliffs at Capel-le-Ferne, between Dover and Folkestone.

The Battle, which in large part took place in the sky over the County of Kent, lasted from 10 July to 31 October 1940. During that time over 500 fighter pilots lost their lives defending Britian. Without their sacrifice it is essentially certain that World War II would have been lost. In the words of Winston Churchill: 'Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.'

The Memorial has had to close during the lockdown necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, a major source of income, the revenue generated by site visitors, has been lost. The members of the Association's Management Committee agreed to make a donation to support the Memorial after hearing of the financial difficulties resulting from the temporary closure.
