Photographic Competition 2016
"YOUR WELLINGBOROUGH"

Best Overall Winner: Virginija Cepulyte


Welcome to Wellingborough Civic Society

Wellingborough Civic Society has its origins in 1972.  It was set up to try to save the Lyric Cinema from demolition when the Swansgate Centre was being built.  Other allied groups have successfully saved the Tithe Barn after its fire, and another group saved the facade of Hatton Hall.
   The Society was relaunched in 1979 with Mr Peter Gadd (dec) as Chairman, succeeded in 1989 by Mrs Judith Thompson, then Mr Bob Townson in 2001.  Current Chairwoman  is Mrs Shena Krupin. President is Reverend David Saint.

"A CIVIC SOCIETY IS:

- a friendly society
- a concerned society
- an active society

 NOW IS TIME TO:

- get involved 
- find out what is going on in your high street
- discover more about the work your local society does
- get on to the streets
- help make our towns work"

 GRIFF RHYS JONES, President of Civic Voice

THE WORK OF THE CAMPAIGN FOR THE PRESERVATION OF RURAL ENGLAND

Thursday, March 16th 2017

Museum Meeting

When the society looks forward to welcoming Alan Mayes from Campaign to Protect Rural England to speak on the work of this organisation, values of which resound strongly with those of Wellingborough Civic Society and are aptly described by CPRE in a direct quote from their web site:
“we campaign for a beautiful and living countryside. We work to protect, promote and enhance our towns and countryside to make them better places to live, work and enjoy, and to ensure the countryside is protected for now and future generations”

A very warm welcome is extended to both members and visitors where the talk will be both interesting and informative followed by tea or coffee. The addition of biscuits gives positive encouragement to the time honoured practice of ‘dunking’!

Members £1.00 Non-Members £2.00

Campaign to Protect Rural England

We look forward to meeting you!
