Goudhurst D-Day Celebrations 6th June 2024

Our community will be commemorating the 80th anniversary of D-Day at the Goudhurst war memorial between 9:05 and 9:30am on Thursday 6 June.

Please note this change from previous mention of the commemoration starting at 9:30am.  This is in fact when it will be ending.

A short service will be followed by the ringing of church bells – how many learned the liberation of Europe had finally begun in 1944 – and the raising of commemorative flags at St Mary’s, Goudhurst, in Kilndown, and in Curtisden Green between 6 and 12 June.

Bells will also be rung at Lamberhurst (6:30pm) and Christ Church, Kilndown (7:30pm) on 6 June.

We Will Remember Them
