CLITHEROE Civic Society’s special display to mary Civic Day 2012 attracted a large number of people, including the town’s Mayor and Mayoress, Counc Allan and Sue Knox.

Encouraged by Town Crier Roland Hailwood, members of the public enjoyed the display of “Then and Now in Clitheroe” (lent by Sue Holden from Clitheroe Library), as well as old maps showing the growth of Clitheroe and the work of its Civic Society over the past year.

There was support for the restoration of the town’s three ancient wells. Ideas were suggested for future projects, including plotting the past owners of shops in the town and naming the ginnels in Castle Street.

Also among the day’s visitors were Mayor and Mayoress of Ribble Valley Coun. Ian Sayers and Mrs Jean Hayes.

The Civic Society’s monthly meetings resume on September 3rd with a buffet to celebrate its 50th anniversary. Tickets are available to past members at £4.50.
