Welcome to the Kent (North West) branch of the Western Front Association.

Where we meet: The Royal British Legion Club, Queensway, Petts Wood, Orpington, Kent BR5 1DH. This is next to Morrison's supermarket and Petts Wood railway station. Parking at the rear of the venue is free but you need to enter your car registration into the machine (on the left as you enter the club). There's also easy parking in adjacent sidestreets.

When we meet: At 19:30 on the last Thursday of each month (except December). The doors (and the bar) open at 18:30.

 

All physical branch meetings have been suspended for the foreseeable future.
Instead, we are organising regular online talks via zoom (details below). These are being planned for the last Thursday of each month. To stay up to date, join the NW Kent mailing list. Email: wfa.nwkent@gmail.com

 

Online talks: Powered by zoom and held on the last Thursday of the month, these talks start at 19:45 and end about 21:00. Participating is quick and easy. The only equipment you need is either a computer, or a tablet, or a smart phone. Simply email us - wfa.nwkent@gmail.com - and we'll send you a link to log you into the video meeting. We'll also automatically add you to the branch mailing list to keep you updated with future events.
