The Wisbech Society
The Society was founded in 1939 with the aim of maintaining Wisbech's historic heritage. We care deeply about Wisbech and demonstrate this through our concern for its future as well as its past. The Society is recognised by Fenland District Council as needing to be consulted and allowed to contribute to all Planning Applications relating to Listed buildings and all proposals within the conservation areas.
We are members of the national Civic Trust, The Georgian Group and The Council for the Protection of Rural England, and link with such organisations as the National Trust. We work closely with local organisations such as the Wisbech and Fenland Museum and the Tourist Office. The Trustees include local Councillors, and individuals with a wealth of local knowledge, enabling them to act as a body of informed opinion.
Members enjoy social activities, organised visits, monthly talks in the winter by interesting speakers. The Society encourages local research which it publishes in its Annual Review and special publications.
