Welcome to the Addingham Civic Society Website

We were established in 1978 and from a relatively small membership quickly grew to 260 in 1987 and over the following years continued to grow to the point that our membership now stands at 389 (August 2023). This figure represents over 10% of the total population of our village. We are a Registered Charity and currently have a board of 15 Trustees which includes 4 Officers consisting of a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. We meet monthly to conduct Society business. Within our structure the Society has a number of sub committees who are able to focus and specialise on a range of activities and projects. Finance, Planning, Heritage and our Environment Group are 4 such examples. We have very close links with the many Organisations and Clubs in the Village and we work closely with Bradford Council, the Parish Council, our Member of Parliament and other external bodies. It is not coincidental that one of our important objectives is to work with, support and promote the many other village organisations.

If you wish to join the Society then please download our New Members Booklet and then go to our Join Us page.

The Society is an active member of the Yorkshire & Humberside Association of Civic Societies (YHACS), which is the regional body representing 38 member Societies.
