"Preserve the best of the past,

promote the best of the new"     

 With this aim the Society began in 1963, embarking on an ambitious programme of street improvement schemes, building conservation projects and traffic studies.

 Much of the Society's work today is done in partnership with South Lakeland District Council

 Registered Charity Number 238470

Kendal Civic Society is an amenity organization run by volunteers who, as our mission statement indicates, wish not only to preserve the best of what is left of Kendal’s past but also to promote the best of the new to ensure that a vibrant, historic, picturesque and interesting town is passed on to future generations.

The Society is governed by our President Susie Bagot of Levens Hall, although the day-to-day running is carried out by an Executive Committee of members elected annually at the AGM.

The Executive Committee consists of twelve Trustees and as many co-opted members as necessary. The officers of the Society consist of a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Hon. Secretary and Treasurer. The Council can then be split into smaller sub-committees as required.

Kendal Civic Society is registered as a charity (No. 238470).
