WHO WE ARE

WE ARE PONTEFRACT CIVIC SOCIETY

Established in 1969, Pontefract Civic Society is a registered charity promoting and supporting the well-being of Pontefract in all its aspects.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
― Margaret Mead

We share the belief that the places in which we live and work can be greatly improved by the commitment and determination of its citizens.

By promoting civic pride and facilitating community engagement, we hope to improve our public spaces, celebrate our rich historic past and promote Pontefract as a place to live, visit and work.

If you share our vision for the town or have a concerned interest in regeneration, tourism, civic pride, heritage or business, you may like to consider becoming a member. As a registered charity, we rely solely on donations, legacies and membership fees to sustain our work.

  • OUR PROJECTS
