Ian Harvey of Civic Voice describes the work of this national charity for the civic movement in England at this meeting organised by Barton’s Civic Society.  The charity supports organisations, including Barton upon Humber Civic Society, to make  places more attractive, enjoyable and distinctive, and strives to nurture civic pride.

As a national voice with a strong local presence Civic Voice makes a difference where it matters be it lobbying in Whitehall and Westminster, campaigning with local volunteers, speaking out in the media, undertaking research, building partnerships and promoting civic pride. It supports local groups and helps them work together and gives local groups a national voice combining community action with sense of place for the benefit of everyone.

The meeting takes place at the Assembly Rooms on Queen Street and starts at 7.30pm.  Admission for Civic Society members is free, non-members pay £2.
