With the centenary of World War 1
approaching we are starting to plan
what we can do to tell the story of Dymchurch & District's involvement in the conflict. We would be most grateful if you have any photo's, documents or family memories that you can share with us. Please contact any committee member or email us on
Our group was formed in January 2010 after an initial meeting in the previous October where we asked the villagers their thoughts on forming a Heritage Group. The response was fantastic and we have gone from strength to strength with a strong membership. In this short time we have been live on Merdian News when we placed a time capsule in the new Sea Wall. We produced a Pictorial Exhibition of Dymchurch in the Plater Hall at the time of the opening ceremony of the Sea Wall which was performed by Lord Chris Smith. We also assisted Epiphany Productions for the Yesterday TV Channel with the programme "The Germans are coming" where our President, John Coker played a starring role.
