our work

gement in our area is very important to us. Community is at the heart of all we do.

We have successfully campaigned for better public spaces and Conservation Areas; our planning watchdog keeps tabs on planning applications and local policies; championing good ideas, and challenging bad ones – liaising with the planning authority on behalf of the Society.

We also run projects for local green space improvements, tree planting, and wildlife habitat creation.

We’re very proud to support a local project, Beeston Street Art. BSA is led by jazz singer / local events organiser (and Beeston Civic Society member!) Jeanie Barton.

Our community

As well as our public meetings, talks, and guided walks, the Society has an annual programme of events including summer and Civic fairs, and Heritage Open Day. We also co-host umbrella projects such as Beeston Street Art, #alightinBeeston, and Beeston 2020 Vision. As well as support local community projects such as Skate Nottingham (now with a skate park in Beeston), Beeston Film, and The Beeston Showcase.

We hope to be able to return to hosting our Coffee + Chat sessions as soon as a new venue is found.

support us

To support our work in the local community, whether it be funds for our general activities (seasonal programme of events such as guest talks, guided walks, heritage days, and public engagement with planning) – or our specific Street Art, #alightinbeeston or urban greening campaigns, we REALLY appreciate any help you can give.

If you don’t have time to volunteer, or are not a member but appreciate what we do – you can donate easily to our charity PayPal to help us a different way.
