Future Meetings


It is with regret that the Civic Society Committee have decided to cancel the next two meetings - both the April and the May meetings at the Heritage Centre.


The May meeting would have included our AGM which will have to be postponed until September.


We shall consider the viability of our two outside visits in June and July at a later date and will, of course, communicate with you as soon as we have news of the possibility of resuming normal service.


In the meantime, if you have any requests about Town Planning or Civic Matters please don't hesitate to contact us.
