Margate Civic Society
"The love of our town leads us"
Welcome to
our website
Founded in 1968, Margate Civic Society is a registered charity (no.257884). It is affiliated to both the Kent Federation of Amenity Societies and the Kent History Federation and is a founder member of Civic Voice.

We hope that you will enjoy browsing these pages and that they will help you to take pleasure in the history and character of Margate and its surrounding towns and villages.  We hope also to provide a service to members of the Society in publishing news and photographs that will be of interest. 

The Society produces a Newsletter four times a year, and has a winter lecture programme which covers a wide range of interests.  Details are given on the "Calendar" page.  The last meeting of each season includes presentation of the coveted Town Pride awards, and details of the 2020 winners can be found on the "Town Pride" page.  Town Pride contenders are nominated by members of the Society.

If you would like to join Margate Civic Society, details of fees and a link to an application form are shown in the "About us" page.  We currently have almost 150 members and always like to welcome more.  The winter lectures are invariably of a high quality as is the Newsletter, and membership of the Society really is extremely good value.  The Society takes an active role in reviewing and, where appropriate, responding to planning applications and has a good working relationship with Thanet District Council in helping to improve the character and appearance of the area.
