Kent WWII evacuees thank Welsh host families

Breaking News

A special service has been held in Kent to thank the people of south Wales who took in hundreds of child evacuees from the South East of England during World War II.

More than 100 former evacuees attended the thanksgiving event at St Mary The Virgin Church in Cannon Street, Dover.

The congregation sang the Welsh hymn Cwm Rhondda and waved Welsh flags during the service on Sunday.

Hundreds of children were evacuated from Kent in the summer of 1940.
