JEFF STUBBS, Chairman of Nantwich Civic Society, writes about the 50th anniversary of Nantwich Civic Society.

 

twice since then. The town has 132 listed buildings -  the highest number in Cheshire East.

  At the AGM, the members enjoyed a short talk by the new Conservation Officer for our area at Cheshire East Council - Katherine Bailey - to whom I presented a small bunch of flowers in appreciation of her giving up her free time (pictured right).
   The "crowd"(!) photo at the top of the page shows me, in the centre, with our President, Keith Burton, to the right.

   Just behind Keith, the tall fair-haired gentleman is our third Chairman from the 1970s, Keith Ward, who was given an especially warm welcome.

  The picture above also includes the newly-installed Mayor of Nantwich, Cllr Penny Butterill (third from the right, front row) with Alderman Doug Butterill - her husband and Consort during her term of office - behind her. They are both members of the society.

   There are also other Town Councillors and well known townspeople who are members of other local groups as well as our society.

 

OUR 50th anniversary Annual General Meeting - an historic event for the town - was celebrated on Tuesday, May 16, in Nantwich Museum's lovely Millennium Gallery.

   The society was formed by some very enlightened Nantwich residents.

   Worried by the demolition, in previous years, of many historic buildings they, like many other communities, formed a voluntary society to press for better building design standards and conservation of their historic environment.

   The first Town Centre Conservation Area a few years later was their major success - it has been enlarged
