The Whitby Civic Society
The present Civic Society was formed in 1996. All Civic Societies try to protect buildings in the town which are under threat and to enhance the pride of Whitby people in the their town.
The Society has a monthly public lecture and a magazine for members. It has published the White Rabbit Trail based on Lewis Carrol and helped to revise the two town trails. The committee
meets once a month to discuss any planning issue which might effect the environment of the town. Every aspect of the town is kept under revue with designated members attending other
committee meetings and reporting back. Its most evident demonstration are the Blue Plaques to prominent people who lived or found their inspiration from Whitby.
The Society's Committee
This meets at least once a month when the officers give a report and there is a discussion on any planning issues. The various members with special responsibilities then give a report
on their work if there are any new developements.The rest of the committee ask questions and discuss these reports and give their consent to any actions which may be necessary.
These meetings usually take about two hours and are held in the home of a member of the committee.
