MORE than 60 members of Nantwich Civic Society and guests gathered in Nantwich Museum on November 21 to celebrate 50 years of serving the community with emphases on conservation, good design and practical volunteering.

   We were pleased to welcome Cllr Rachel Bailey, Leader of Cheshire East Council, as our guest speaker.

   She gave us an informative, frank and lively talk on the many issues and constraints facing the council.

   Topics ranged from her early memories of Nantwich in the 1960s, the Local Plan, and the housing supply (of course), as well as the future of social and elderly care,

 

the economy, HS2, and refugees.

 Cllr Bailey also highlighted the need for making our lovely town and surrounding area attractive for our younger people to stay and live in - as well as her personal belief in strong local identity in the design of buildings.

   Everyone appreciated her warmth and sincerity.

   "Thank you" from us all.

 

LIKE many Trusts and Societies around the country, residents in 1967 were very concerned about the national push for modernisation that was demolishing or

 

 leaving to rot, so many historic buildings.

   The society was instrumental in seeing the first and revised Town Centre Conservation Area established.

  Four years ago, campaigning by the society inspired the creation of The Nantwich Partnership -  a coalition of local councils, and voluntary groups   across the town, aiming to improve the public realm and quality of environment of the town.
