The Society arranges regular meetings for its members, and these are also open to members of the public. In addition a number of visits to places of interest are organised.

The full programme of events for 2020 is here - but see the notice below

Next Event:

As Government restrictions on public gatherings and travel because of the COVID-19 emergency continue, the Civic Society Committee have decided to extend the suspension of all of their public and committee meetings that were scheduled to take place in June, July and August.

This includes:

The coach trip to Whitby Museum on Sunday 21st June - as previously announced.

The talk by Robert Dyson on "The Municipal Buildings of Leeds" on Thursday 16th July.

The coach trip to Auckland Castle on Sat 22nd August.

Status of meetings beyond this period will obviously depend on restrictions then in force, and updates on these will be made as soon as possible. The next scheduled meeting is planned for Thursday 17th September - a talk in Portholme Church about "Butlins Holiday Camps" by Stephen Wells.

The Society Committee is continuing to conduct as much as possible of its business during this period, using social media, email and telephone conferences.

We hope that at some future date we will be in a position to re-run some of the suspended events.

Members are important to the Society, so we apologise for the unavaoidable suspensions of these social events. But our duty of care to members and the public who would have attended meant that this was the only option available to us.
