Hythe Civic Society
Hythe Civic Society was formed in 1945 and today, with 850 members, is one of the largest in the country. Hythe itself is one of the five historic Cinque Ports of South Kent and East Sussex with a strong sense of its own identity. unique features include the Royal Military Canal – built as a defence against Napoleon’s planned invasion but now a beautiful linear park; the church of St. Leonard, dating to the earliest phase of Norman England with its large collection of ancient bones and skulls and a 2 miles long promenade with the still active Fisherman’s Beach with its attractive boats, fishmonger’s shop and martello towers at its western end.
Friends of St Leonard’s Church Hythe
What the Friends do
The Friends of St Leonard’s decided from the outset that it would not be just one more body asking for money every twelve months. Instead it would play an active role in the community by arranging a variety of events throughout the year, some in the church itself and others elsewhere in the town. These include concerts of a wide range of types, many of which are given by professional musicians. Special emphasis has been placed on performers from the major London colleges of music. These and other artistic events have led to St Leonard’s establishing a reputation as the prime cultural centre in Hythe. They all help to raise money for the causes supported by the Friends
