1937 - Whitstable Parish Church Magazine - September

This is the sixth featured issue of the seven transcriptions made by Ken Sainsbury from issues of Whitstable Parish Church Magazines which he has kindly allowed us to include on this site.

35 years from the last issue is quite a jump in time so as you would expect everything has changed.

The name now is ‘St. Peter’s Church, Whitstable Parish Magazine’ and no mention is made of Seasalter or St. Alphege churches.

The names mentioned now are within living people’s memory, so should be interesting from another perspective.
