The achievements of Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust and its plans for the future will be outlined next week.

This will be the second lecture presented by the newly-formed Civic Society of Great Yarmouth and is on Tuesday, March 6 at Christchurch.

The speaker will be the trust’s project director Darren Barker and the meeting starts at 7.30pm. As well as talking about the buildings saved in recent years he will also cover future plans for refurbishing the Waterways and the Winter Gardens.

The Civic Society has been set up to improve the appearance of the town, to make it a better place in which to live and for people to visit.

The society wants to clean up, light up and green up the town and promote a sense of pride in Great Yarmouth.

Chairman Hugh Sturzaker will tell those attending about plans including a visit to Kings Lynn, future talks, dates for guided walks around the town wall, dates for some litter picking events, and updates of what the society has been doing.

Mr Sturzaker is also keen to hear from people who would be interested in working with Great Yarmouth in Bloom to help “green up” the town.

Anyone interested in finding out more about the Civic Society can go along to the Christchurch meeting – there are nearly 100 members and there is a fee of £3 for non-members.

On Tuesday, April 10, High Steward of Great Yarmouth, Henry Cator, will talk about his historic role and what Yarmouth means to him – he is also president of the society.

Mr Sturzaker said: “Anyone who cares about Yarmouth and wishes to help achieve the aims of the Society can find more details on the website www.civicsocietygy.co.uk”

The society’s logo is a burgeoning green pea pod to help in its aims of “Preserving, Protecting, Promoting with Pride”.
