    News Update:

    It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of one of the former members of the Executive Committee, Frances Avery on the 29th April 2016. Frances was our membership secretary for many years and was instrumental in setting up and organising the delivery of the quarterly Newsletter. Until 2011 she also arranged and supplied the catering for our Garden Parties, Conservation Award evenings and Christmas meetings.
    Her funeral takes place on Thursday 19th May at 13.00 hrs at Tunbridge Wells Crematorium and afterwards at The Spa Hotel. If you are planning to attend it would be helpful if you could let us know by email to:
  • enquiries@thecivicsociety.org

    Our next event:

      Thursday 9th June - in the Council Chamber, Town Hall at 7.30pm
      Crested China - an illustrated talk by John Cunningham, Chair of our Local History Group, about this largely forgotten tourist souvenir that in its day sold in millions. (This is a change to our previously advertised programme).
