The March Society’s Civic Voice East of England Network Meeting Postponed

The March Society, as a member of Civic Voice, was going to host Civic Voice’s East of England Network Meeting for civic societies on April 18th but it has sadly been postponed following government advice about Coronavirus.
Representatives from twenty six Civic Societies from Hunstanton in the north to Coggleshall and Colchester in the south, and from Huntingdon and Godmanchester in the west to Great Yarmouth in the east were invited.
It was an opportunity for The March Society to show to the societies a brief history of March and the work of The March Society: the attractive assets of the town and the heritage concerns.
There was to be also a presentation by Hunstanton Civic Society on the new Hunstanton Heritage Centre.
After lunch in Ye Olde Griffin Hotel there would have been a choice of two walking tours of March: along the High Street and Causeway to see St Wendreda’s church or a tour of March’s heritage buildings along the River Nene and West End.
These East of England meetings are an opportunity for civic societies across the region to learn more of the towns and cities and their civic societies’ work to help to improve them.
It is hoped that this event will take place in the autumn depending on future government advice.
