Events and Activities

Members of The March Society may choose to just attend our monthly meetings in March Library, or may wish to become more involved in the work of the committee, which holds meetings about every six weeks. 

The March Society is invited to comment on planning applications in the conservation area and other relevant areas of March. 

Members and residents bring concerns about heritage buildings and the environment to the notice of The March Society who contact the relevant authorities. 

Regular meetings are held with Fenland conservation officers and other local civic societies to raise concerns.

The March Society is a member of Civic Voice and of Civic Voice's East of England Network.

The March Society has been responsible for organising the annual Heritage Open Days in September.

Our next event is a talk by David Thomas  Chief Executive Middle Level Commissioners                                                                           'Where does all the water go? Living in a pumped catchment'.                                                                                     about the work of the Middle Level Commissioners and associated Internal Drainage Boards and the unique nature of the catchment, how it is managed and controlled. The talk will cover the UKs largest land drainage pumping station and the new Middle Level Act passed last year, updating the Commissioners 150 old navigation powers.
