Nantwich Society celebrates 50 years


On the 21st November, over 60 members and guests gathered in Nantwich Museum to celebrate 50 years of serving the community with its emphases on Conservation, Good Design and practical volunteering.
Like many Trusts and Societies around the country, residents in 1967 were so 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, (and chairs) The Nantwich Partnership - a coalition of both local councils, and voluntary groups across the town, aiming to improve the public realm and quality of environment of the town.
An exhibition of past work, the town – historic and modern – ending with questions about the future - is at Nantwich Museum, Pillory Street Nantwich until January 20th.

Photos show the guest Speaker Cllr Rachel Bailey, Leader of Cheshire East Council together with Chair, Jeff Stubbs, as well as some of the guests - it was probably the first meeting in 50 years when there had been “standing room only” for many. We
were grateful for the support of local, long-established Architects, Bower Edleston.
