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.
