Scarborough Civic Society

Looking out for Scarborough

We keep in touch with our members through our quarterly newsletter (click here for our latest issue)  This provides information about our activities   and our social and fund-raising events. Whether you are an individual or an organisation, we shall be delighted to hear from you. It does not matter if you cannot take an active part in our activities: your moral and financial support would be greatly appreciated. Your subscriptions will be used to cover the administrative costs incurred by the Society and to help fund our projects.

What we do:

Organise the blue Civic Society historical information plaques attached to buildings where notable people lived.

Commissioned public art for Scarborough: the Diving Belle, the Bathing Belle and “Belief”

Read and respond to important planning applications submitted to the Council.

Publish guide books and information leaflets for residents and visitors.

Publish regular newsletters to keep everyone informed of what's happening to our town and our Society.

Organise guided historical walks, lectures and meetings. Fund-raise for projects such as the restoration of shelter seven in South Cliff Gardens.

Our aims are:

To promote civic pride in the beauty, history and character of Scarborough and its surroundings.

To take an active interest in maintaining those features on which the character of the town depends.

To encourage high quality developments which lead to an improved living and working environment for us to enjoy.

To act as a co-ordinating body and to co-operate with the local authorities, planning committees, and persons having aims similar to those of the Society
