About Us

Howden Civic Society has for more than thirty years acted as a watchdog on all developments in the town. Its principal task is to monitor proposals which might impact on the historic core and traditions of Howden.

As a voluntary organisation it depends on a loyal and well-informed membership. We hold monthly meetings with visiting speakers and occasional outings to places of interest which keep members up-to-date on developments and provide background history and information.

We keep in touch with our members through our newsletters. Further details about our society are available on the Charity Commission and Guidestar websites.


Why not consider joining us, new members are always very welcome. Our annual membership fees are £8 for an individual or £15 for a family at the same address. To join us, just come along to one of our meetings and fill in our membership form (meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month at the Masonic Hall). Alternatively you may prefer to contact us by email by just going to our contact page.
