The Purbeck Society has joined Civic Voice, the national organisation for local civic societies. This is an important development enabling the Purbeck Society to network with other local civic societies and to raise the profile of local heritage in and beyond Purbeck. Joining Civic Voice is a step that the Purbeck Society is taking in order to research, enhance and celebrate the heritage of the area.

The heritage of Purbeck is under the threats of inappropriate development, limited funding of local government heritage functions, and a lack of awareness of the role that heritage can play in the local economy of the area.

Please share your local knowledge of and interest in the area with the committee of the Purbeck Society who will be at our meetings which are publicised in the Events section of our website.
