Welcome to the Canterbury Society

The Committee is very sorry it has been unable to offer its normal programme of talks, events and other activities such as its litter picks this spring. We sincerely hope all members fully understand. Our intention is to re-arrange these as from mid-September, beginning with our Heritage Open Days, postponed AGM and a talk on mental illness in Canterbury. On the 20th November there will be a talk by Lord King, former governor of the Bank of England.
Richard Scase (Chair)

6 August: There are still 9 days left to enter the Canterbury Society’s Photo Competition Meadows and Pollinators (further details in the poster below). Here are a couple of lovely entries received so far!


Our aim is to enhance the quality of the City’s environment. To preserve and improve its architecture, its green spaces and its transport, to combat litter and graffiti. We regard the economic and social welfare of our citizens as something that has to be protected. Community governance and social cohesion are important to us. We provide a forum for local discussion and debate but we are strictly non-political. Often we partner with the Council and with other City civic associations that share similar objectives.

We cannot operate without member subscriptions. All our work is voluntary and unpaid but we have to pay for room bookings, insurance, and printing costs for posters and leaflets.
