Griff Rhys Jones Visits Bewdley Civic Society
A collaboration between Bewdley Festival and Bewdley Civic Society brought Griff Rhys Jones to Bewdley Baptist Church on Thursday 3rd November. A capacity audience heard Griff combine his talent to amuse with his heartfelt views on the necessity to care for and about our surroundings. As President of Civic Voice, the national charity for the civic movement in England (of which Bewdley Civic Society is a founder member),  Griff exhorted his audience always to consider carefully the type and quality of any proposed new developments before it becomes too late.

Bewdley Civic Society Spring newsletter


It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the death of our President, Mr Kenneth Hobson.  Kenneth died peacefully recently, in his sleep, at his home in Wribbenhall.

He worked tirelessly for the Bewdley Civic Society for many years and served as both our Chairman and President.  He remained, until his death, a very active member of our Executive Committee.  More recently, Kenneth edited our regular Newsletters and I am sure many of you will have enjoyed, over the years, his interesting talks, illustrated by numerous old photographs of Bewdley from his extensive collection.
