Our members care about Shrewsbury - if you do too, we'd love you to join us

Why join Shrewsbury Civic Society? 

Our members give a voice to the thousands of people in Shrewsbury who care about the conservation area, the growth of our town and the quality of proposed housing and other developments. Simply being a member helps to shape our town and makes our voice louder.

How to engage with Shrewsbury Civic Society 

We always seek to help our members with their concerns about conservation, heritage and development. We have a planning committee that reviews and scrutinises every planning application and you are welcome to take part in or contribute to their deliberations and discussions. You can also get in touch with us by emailing info@shrewsburycivicsociety.co.uk, phoning 01743 344994* or dropping into the Bear Steps Hall between 10 and 4, Mondays to Saturdays

  • Please note that Shrewsbury Civic Society is staffed by volunteers on a part-time basis, so there may not be anyone available to answer the phone at any given time

What else does the Society offer?

Our website will keep you informed of most developments, as well as offering some more involved articles on aspects of the town. We also have a Facebook and a Twitter account, which you can access from the bottom of this page. There is a quarterly newsletter with plenty of relevant articles, and you will receive invitations to our many events that take place over a year

You can shape the future of the town!

Our members are entitled to attend any committee meeting as an observer or to apply to join any of the various committees and groups in order to influence their direction. Our trustees are voted into office at the Annual General Meeting, so you can have a direct influence on choosing those who steer the Civic Society. And, of course, if you are passionate about our mission, you can become a trustee yourself!

Ready to join? 

Annual membership starts on 1st April each year. The simplest way to renew membership is to set up a standing order. We also ask that you sign the Gift Aid Declaration, which allows us to claim from HMRC. This will not cost you anything but does help us a lot.
