Autumn Cover Thumbnail 2015Hexham Civic Society Members should now be receiving their copies of the new Autumn 2015 HCS Newsletter. The issue focuses on the Value of Heritage – and comes too late for the retention of our Grade II Ropery, recently approved for demolition. The issue reviews public realm, parking, retail and planning proposals.

Hexham is vulnerable as never before, with planning decisions now taking place away from Hexham in distant Morpeth by Councillors from across Northumberland with no evident understanding of the value of Hexham’s unique history, and its existing and potential quality.

Please join us if you are not already a member and help to safeguard Hexham from the forces of philistinism.

The previous Spring 2015 edition of the newsletter can now be downloaded free from here –  Hexham Civic Society Newsletter Spring 2015 sml version
