People have the chance to find out how Huddersfield Civic Society tries to protect the town’s heritage and the role it plays in its future.

Huddersfield Civic Society members will be in Kingsgate shopping centre this Saturday (June 1) from 10am to 4pm so people can chat to them about what they do for the town.

Local history books will also be 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 liaising with the council and commenting on major planning applications Huddersfield Civic Society also 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.”
