About The Civic Society
Civic Society The Montgomery Civic Society was founded in 1973 and membership is open to all who are interested in actively furthering its purposes.  It is a Registered Charity (Charity No 508761).
It is registered with The Civic Trust for Wales and follows the parent body's aims and objectives.  

It was  established for the public benefit of the area comprising the Civil Parish of Montgomery for the following purposes:

  • To promote high standards of planning and architecture.
  • To educate the public in the geography, history, natural history and architecture of the area.
  • To secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of the features of historic or public interest in the area.
  • We aim to promote civic pride in Montgomery by encouraging research, by working together with the local planning authority and other local organisations whose aims are similar to ours, by holding meetings and lectures and by publishing papers, reports and other literature.  We run the Old Bell Museum and Gallery and all members are entitled to free entry throughout the opening season.
