The Nantwich Civic Society at 50 exhibition was formally opened on 21 November 2017 by Cllr. Rachel Bailey, Leader of Cheshire East Council supported by the Mayor of Cheshire East, Cllr Arthur Moran and Mayor of Nantwich Town Council, Cllr. Penny Butterill and their respective consorts.
Nick Dyer, Chair of the museum’s Board of Management welcomed visitors representing numerous local groups and introduced Jeff Stubbs, Chair of Nantwich Civic Society. Jeff extolled the virtues of the town and the valuable contribution made by so many, especially the original members of the Society in the 1960s and 70s for making Conservation of the town a vital, new movement – thus making it such a special place. He noted how, during the last 50 years the town has lost buildings of historic and architectural importance but many have been retained. One aim of the exhibition is to stimulate thoughts about modern architecture and how future buildings in the town might be designed.
The exhibition runs until Saturday 20 January 2018.
