News release 13/02/2018

Kent in WW1 – 100 Miles for 100 Years 
Walk 100 Event

 

Communities are invited to join in the 100 miles for 100 years Heritage Lottery funded project’s county wide walking event on the weekend of 24th and 25th February 2018.

 

You will discover more about your town in the First World War, and find out where those who fought lived, went to school and worked. Using our self guided trail leaflets explore your neighbourhood to locate the shops where people registered their ration books, the pubs they used or the cinemas they went to.

 

Make sure your community is represented and receive a special edition pin badge to show you were part of this event. 

  

 

We are holding events in Appledore, Ashford, Canterbury, Dartford, Deal, Dover, Gravesend, Great Chart, Herne Bay, Isle of Sheppey, Lydd, Maidstone, Margate, Ramsgate, Sevenoaks, Tenterden, Tonbridge and Westgate on Sea.

 

Full details on the dates and venues can be found at www.kentww1.com; a brief timetable can be found below. Please register your interest by emailing walk@kentww1.com.

 

We are very grateful to the many volunteers who are supporting these events.
