Often referred to as the ‘City’s Watchdogs’, the Civic Society is the conservation and amenity movement for St Albans. We are a member of the national organisation ‘Civic Voice‘.

Founded in 1961 and part of the nationwide civic society movement, we are a registered charity, number 200330, and a non party-political and non religious organisation, ready to welcome everyone who cares about the future of St Albans.

So, do join us, maybe to offer to help, or maybe just to show you support our aims. We offer, above all, a chance to be involved and have a say in what our city looks like and how it functions.

Our Summer 2017 newsletter is now available.

Awards

Each year St Albans Civic Society celebrates imaginative development and design initiatives which have been completed within the city in the previous year – anything from an entire housing scheme to a beautiful front door. While many of the projects considered are architectural, and can involve restoration as well as new buildings, we have also in past years given the chief award to green space refurbishment, such as in the Vintry Gardens, and, less easy to categorise, the larger-than-life-size puppets that accompany the annual St Albans Pilgrimage.
