Pop-up information stand gives people chance to find out more about Huddersfield Civic Society

People had the chance to find out how Huddersfield Civic Society tries to protect the town’s heritage and the role we play in its future.

Society members set up a stall in Kingsgate shopping centre on Friday, June 21, 2024 so people could chat to us about what we do for the town.

Local history books were on sale at the event, including the popular Villas of Edgerton written by local historian David Griffiths, which has just been reprinted for a third time.

Huddersfield Civic Society has been protecting the town’s heritage and doing all it can to preserve its important buildings, amenities and places for 60 years. 

By talking to the council and commenting on major planning applications, Huddersfield Civic Society plays a key role helping to shape the way Huddersfield is developed in the future. 

Society chairman David Wyles said: “With major developments taking place at the railway station, the university, the Piazza and elsewhere, this is an exciting moment of opportunity for Huddersfield.  We are determined to ensure it results in high quality developments the town can take pride in.”

One lucky visitor who stopped to discuss Huddersfield’s future was rewarded with a year’s free membership.
