The Civic Society is a non-political, voluntary organisation dedicated to shaping the future of Ashby de la Zouch and preserving its proud heritage.

Campaigns We have successfully prevented unwanted changes to Market Street and housing development on Bath Grounds. Retained the Open Air swimming baths, reduced the number of hot food takeaways and improved parking.  We are also campaigning against the large inappropriate housing developments in Ashby.  We also have delegates in all the 'District Plan' forums.    

Monthly Events Entertaining Speakers, visits to places of local interest, planning updates and newsletters are all part of our monthly meetings.  Held 2nd Tuesday of each month usually at Legion House, 27a South Street, Ashby LE65 1BQ

Involvement: We are involved with floral displays and garden areas in the town and erected the Armillary Sundial outside the library and funded other improvements around the town.

Civic Awards :  These highly prestigious awards are granted for buildings of exceptionald design, restoration and evnviromental improvements.
