Now in its 76th year, Wisbech Society and Preservation Trust is working harder than ever to safeguard the history and heritage of Wisbech, Capital of the Fens. The preservation of the town’s stunning architecture is always very high on the agenda and Fenland District Council consults the Society on planning matters affecting the town’s Listed buildings and conservation areas.
Wisbech Society and Preservation Trust keeps a close eye on renovation projects as well as providing funding where appropriate. Through 2014 it worked closely with Fenland District Council on a Townscape bid for funding to regenerate the High Street, and continues with plans to restore the chapel of rest in the town’s historically significant General Cemetery. Working hand-in-hand with the Friends of Wisbech General Cemetery, the Society has ensured the site’s future.
An active and effective civic society, the Wisbech Society and Preservation Trust takes great pride in the commemoration and celebration of the town’s cultural past, including its many eminent citizens – the Society has installed blue plaques on several relevant buildings around the town.
Membership is open to all, with the annual fee not only helping fund the Society’s many and varied activities, but also allowing access to a programme of fascinating winter lectures and a series of exclusive trips in the spring and summer months. And thanks to the Society’s association with Civic Voice, members also receive one free entry to a National Trust property and one free admission to an English Heritage site per year.
