Protecting the built + natural environment of Beeston since 1974.
We have successfully campaigned for better public spaces and Conservation Areas; our planning watchdog keeps tabs on planning applications and local policies – leasing with the planning authority on behalf of the Society.
We’re very proud of our sister project, Beeston Street Art, and also run projects for local green space improvements, tree planting, and wildlife habitat creation.
As well as our regular Coffee + Chat sessions, public meetings, talks, and guided walks, the Society has an annual programme of events including Street Art festivals, summer and Civic fairs, and Heritage Open Day.
JOIN + STAND!
We’re nothing without our Civic Society membership, and for our Society to continue, we need new members + a new 2021/22 Committee.
You need to be a member to be on our Committee – either as Executive, or general Officer. Existing members can nominate here.
If you’re not yet a member, but would like to join + stand for our Committee join us as a new member online here FIRST.
Once enrolled you will be able to nominate yourself.

We always welcome members who want to give of their time to join our Committee in formal roles, or as officers with specific skills or interests to share. Now we need it more than ever!
