A short history of the East Kent Buddhist Group

An ordained Buddhist named Danapriya; after living at the London Buddhist Centre for 9 years, moved to Deal. On realising that Deal did not have a Buddhist Group, he decided to give a public talk at the Royal Hotel in Deal on Friday 9th August 2007. 78 people attended that event which led to what we have today - which is 3 regular public events each week, festival days, study groups, 10 ordained members living in the area, retreats and a thriving Buddhist Sangha.
