Civic and Amenity

The Society needs you!

Since it was set up over 70 years ago, the Chepstow Society has been active in monitoring the changes taking place in the town, helping to protect what is valuable, and seeking improvements to the town’s environment.

We need to continue to carry out this vital function.  One way would be to set up a small group of members, who can keep each other informed (virtually if preferred), follow local media, and coordinate inputs to other organisations – like the town and county councils, and local groups such as the Chamber of Commerce, Transition Chepstow, and others.

This need not be an onerous responsibility for anyone – the responsibilities can be shared.  Expertise and past experience would be invaluable – but what is most important is an interest in the town, and in ensuring its wellbeing and the protection of what makes it so special.

If you are interested in helping out, please contact Guy Hamilton – via email or 07786 500609.
