WCS Members

Our members take an interest in the Civic affairs of our district, by supporting the activities of our various committees (see WCS Management below), participating in meetings and attending civic events.

Many members (and non-members) further enhance their enjoyment of our local civic environment by participation as volunteers at The Nothe Fort Museum and The Tudor House Museum.

As important and interesting features of our local  built environment, the Museums presents members with the opportunity to get to know and work alongside other like minded enthusiasts.

WCS Management

The Civic Society is organised into a series of Committees working under the supervision of a Board of Directors, many of whom are also Trustees of the charity. The main committees are described below.

The WCS Board (Trustees)

This  is the main WCS management committee. It oversees the activities of the three main operating committees and works closely with the Nothe Fort professional management team on all aspects of Fort development and financial management.

The names of all members of the Board are listed on the WCS page of the Charity Commission website (tap HERE) which is updated annually.
