'The Kidderminster Civic Society was founded in 1993 following the demolition of the Kidderminster Library and the Schools of Arts and Science ... The Society has held back the forces in favour of the steady demolition of the town’s historic townscape by a series of successful listing applications ... There is a varied programme of walks, talks, visits and other events throughout the year. Suggestions for and contributions to the programme are always welcome ... Additional meetings are arranged when local issues arise needing a prompt response by the Society.  It is your Society – help us to use it to good effect.'

'The Society works to protect and improve Stourport and to promote interest in its history as a Georgian New Town and Canal Port, industrial centre and inland resort. The society is concerned to safeguard the greenbelt and landscape of the Severn Valley. The Society is a non political organisation.'

'Formed in 1988 and has over 80 members, of which around 50 regularly attend meetings and talks. The objectives of the Society are to research, and record, the history of Wolverley and Cookley, and to collect, conserve and publish historical records and research material. To meet these objectives we maintain an archive of books, documents and other material and publish articles submitted by members. We also arrange talks by outside speakers and local walks which often include something of historical interest.'

'The main aim of the Group is to actively promote the history and heritage of the Wyre Forest area.'
