‘Preserve the past - serve the present - deserve the future’
As the Town’s Civic Society we work actively with the Civic Trust and for many years have participated in the Trust’s National Heritage Open Days programme.
This takes place over the second weekend in September when we hope to offer a varied range of properties ‘open to view’
Members of the Society’s committee represent a broad spectrum of The Town’s community. It considers all relevant planning applications submitted to the district council.
We endeavour to ensure that applications reflect the wishes of the owners without compromising the fabric of our historic town.
The Society, in co-operation with the Town and District Councils, seek to promote and increase the trade and tourism of the Town and to assist and encourage improvements to the amenities and infrastructure.
Whilst the Society does not hold regular public meetings it is open to suggestions and willing to meet the needs and wishes of the community.
The Annual General Meeting held at the beginning of December is open to all and includes an interesting and relevant speaker.
Membership of the Society is open to all interested in the past, present and future of our town.
