The aims of the Society

Our aims are based on those of the Civic Voice. We hope to fulfil those ideals at a local level.

We are an independent voluntary group with a growing membership including local schools. We aim to ensure that residents and visitors alike are able to enjoy Hunstanton and the surrounding villages and countryside.

Our primary aims:
monitor local authority and other agency proposals that would affect our community. Monitor publicly provided services and amenities to ensure the provision of high quality solutions

influence public opinion concerning planning, conservation, restoration, and environmental issues

protect local features of historical interest

promote high standards of planning and architecture and civic pride

Ensure the conservation of fine buildings and the best appearance of our communities and the local environment so that they maintain their special character and appeal to visitors

Foster interest in the local past, present and future and create opportunities for those who share our interests to meet and mix together

Work with all representative groups and encourage people of all ages to work together to achieve the best for our community.

Distribute publicity regarding local campaigns, future events and topical news.

Provide opportunities to involve all who share our common interest in what is best for our community without regard for age, ethnicity, religion, politics, occupation or status.

Although essentially a local community interest society membership is open to all who will help us achieve our aims and objectives whatever their place of residence.

How could you help?
You can help us achieve our aims as a civic society in various ways. It is not always possible to find spare time to help but you may like to think about the following suggestions.

Consider including a gift in your will to Hunstanton & District Civic Society. All legacies are used to help meet the changing needs of Hunstanton and the surrounding villages, whether they are to do with preserving the best of our past inheritance or to do with improving our town and thereby thinking of the future.

Fundraising is important for our society as with increased funding we can think more creatively about what we can achieve so any donations can make a real difference. Donations can be general or, if you prefer, dedicated to a special area of interest.

For more information contact our treasurer Stephen Kent
who can be contacted by email at
who will be happy to discuss possibilities in the strictest confidence.

Volunteering: Of course you may be interested in contributing to the society by sharing your invaluable skills and giving a little spare time. Without volunteers we could not continue and we welcome anyone who would like to join us in this way. Please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator Terry Ashworth (01485 535292) who will be more than pleased to talk to you.
