Help us to preserve our local heritage
10:20am Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
A LONGSTANDING society dedicated to preserving local heritage is on the lookout for new members.
Upton-upon-Severn Civic Society is holding a recruitment drive in the hope of bolstering its ranks and ensuring its long-term future. It will be running a window display explaining its aims and objectives at 17 High Street, Upton, between Monday, October 28, and Saturday, November 9.
Chairman Kate Chester- Lamb said: “The society was formed 46 years ago, partially as a result of the threat to demolish the Pepperpot, as the tower of the old church is known, and still works hard to maintain the unique character of Upton and to preserve its heritage of fine historic buildings while encouraging well-designed sustainable development.
“At a time when all small towns and villages are under pressure from new housing development, it is vitally important we continue our work.”
The society holds regular meetings featuring guest speakers. Anyone interested in joining can call 01684 594745 or email kchesterlamb@ btinternet.com.
