The newspaper that was to become the Kentish Gazette first came off the press in Canterbury in 1717. That makes the Kentish Gazette the oldest title within the KM Group - indeed the second oldest in the country.
In 1942 its offices in St George's Street, Canterbury, were bombed along with most of that part of the city in a devastating Luftwaffe attack.
Amazingly that week's paper came out with a full report of the bombing thanks to the help of the Kent Messenger which allowed staff to use its unscathed offices.
Kentish Gazette was acquired by KM Group in 1980 and was named Weekly Paid-for Newspaper of the Year at the EDF Energy London & the South of England Media Awards 2010.
The Kentish Gazette series includes the Whitstable Gazette, the Herne Bay Gazette and the Faversham News.
