Our new Medical Centre is now fully functional and it was formally opened on September 22rd.
Also, after a false start, the new library is finished and is also fully functional.
Regarding the old library and medical centre sites, we trust the initial intentions for use are followed and not changed! Your committee will do whatever is necessary to ensure adherence to the original plans.
As you can see from the picture below, cars ,car parking and access to the new medical centre are all problems that concern your Civic Society.
Good progress is being made by the Stanley Baldwin Statue Appeal Co. towards the erection of a wonderful, larger than life, bronze statue of Stanley Baldwin who became Earl Baldwin of Bewdley in 1937. More information is available by clicking this link Stanley Baldwin statue in town site
A fitting memorial to the late Ken Hobson has been established in the shape of the Ken Hobson Room a well appointed room in the Town Centre for meetings, storing archives, sales materials etc. A few final items of furniture are still required, so if anyone can contribute we will be posting a list of our needs here shortly.
the property speculator, proposal to build 195 homes on land adjacent to The Lakes Road, Bewdley is totally opposed by the Civic Society for numerous reasons. The Town Council will also be opposing the proposal.
The Civic Society will not hesitate to lodge objections to the planning authorities concerned, echoing objections raised elsewhere and emphasising that the proposal is speculative, controversial and absolutely in the wrong place.

The outside repairs are now complete and the leaks have been stopped. The external scaffolding has now been removed. Some internal work is still ongoing. The work has been primarily financed by the government’s Listed Places Roof Fund and the Parochial Church Council but donations have also played a vital part.
