‘Stamford Civic Society – and its challenges in the 21st Century’ by Gwyneth Gibbs (Chairman SCS) 

Stamford Civic Society was  formed by a small group in the early 1960s to defend the town’s  heritage and actively fight for its  preservation and improvement. Since then it has grown to have a membership of over 200 people.

Gwyneth gave an interesting talk in which she spoke about their active interest in the town’s heritage and conservation and some of the projects they had been involved with. The pleasures of dealing with three separate councils when planning projects were mentioned. She also touched upon some of the interesting talks organised by the society.
