The Society has about 400 members and maintains an active social and educative programme that aims to entertain and inform them and others. We do not concentrate exclusively upon Malvern but take a broad view of the region and beyond.
Regular Activities for Members
- We hold monthly meetings with speakers talking on a wide variety of topics. Our talks are usually held in Eden Centre, Malvern.
- We have coach excursions and local visits to places of historic and cultural interest.
- We have a programme of monthly country walks that enable members to meet together and broaden their knowledge of the area.
- In the summer the Society’s own guides lead weekly town walks.
If you would like to take part in these activities, we’d be happy to welcome you to the Malvern Civic Society.
The Society publishes a growing list of booklets written by members on various aspects of Malvern’s heritage.
We publish a magazine called “Bandstand” which we e-mail and deliver or post to all members The Annual Report forms part of the October edition.
Civic Week – Midsummer Malvern
In recent years the Society has organised a very successful Civic Week in partnership with other organisations.
The Society has an annual Civic Award Scheme to promote good quality design in the Malvern area.
Our Planning Sub-Committee meets regularly throughout the year, keeps a watchful eye on all new planning applications and opposes proposals that are considered insensitive or inappropriate.
The Society has other working groups, including our Programme Sub-Committee, our Strategy Group, the Friends of Malvern’s Railway and the Friends of Malvern’s Cemeteries, which also meet regularly.
We are building an archive of documents and materials relating to the Society since its foundation.
