Dear Member and Friends of Clitheroe Civic Society,
Welcome to our third journal of 2021. We have a wealth of content again this edition and I hope that you enjoy reading through it. As before, please do send in any articles that you'd like to submit, it's always great to build on the variety of content.
As many of you will know, we re-started our face to face monthly presentations in September, it's been great to see so many members and guests able to attend. We still have many presentations to come in the New Year so do come along if you can, details are available on the Society's website and on the back page of this journal.
October saw the Clitheroe Town Wells Conservation Campaign (a subject of much interest to many members) successfully make the case to a full RVBC Council meeting that the Community Services Committee should re-look at the case for adoption/registration of the wells by the council. They agreed and the Committee will consider the case in January 11th '22.
Along with the Wells campaign meetings, I attend the Town Team meetings on behalf of the Society. The revised Town Team has now met several times and a ‘Terms of Reference’ is now in place (posted on CCS facebook page). The Town Team has representatives from retailers, the Town Council, RVBC, various societies and faith groups and more. The Town Team is initially working to see how pavements and roads can be improved, dilapidated bins replaced and signage cleaned before looking at longer term projects in due course and these projects will always have community engagement before any final decisions are made.
November of course brought Remembrance Sunday and I attended the service at St Mary's and was privileged to lay the wreath on behalf of the Society at a very well attended event.
Have an enjoyable Christmas and New Year and best wishes to all,
