COCKERMOUTH CIVIC TRUST ~ COCKERMOUTH PROBUS CLUB ~


Philip Campbell, Chairman of the Cockermouth Civic Trust gave a talk on the Trust on its history, aims and activities. He explained how he took on the role of chairman 17 years ago and how he felt it was important, that we protect and preserve our town by stimulating public interest in the surrounding locale and by promoting high standards in town planning and architecture.

He briefly spoke of the history of the Civic Society Movement, with Sidmouth laying claim, in the 1840s, to be the forerunner of the movement. The principal objective there, was to enhance the Sidmouth esplanade for the comfort of visitors.


Philip went on to describe how the movement steadily evolved from its inception and experienced a surge of interest after both World Wars. Although there presently is a decline in the number of inspired enthusiasts, there are still 500 Civic Trust Societies, with an estimated total membership of 150,000. He went on to describe how it is important to encourage others, especially youthful citizens to become engaged with the movement


The first meeting in Cockermouth, was in September 1967 and the Trust is now in its 52nd year. Philip then went on to list the various activities organised over the years. The group usually has at least one outing each year and recently visited Rokeby Park, a neo-


Palladian Villa, near Barnard Castle. Organised tours of Cockermouth Castle take place each year and the Society is striving for more public access to this historic edifice. The group established a very interesting and popular town trail in 1995 consisting of 19 plaques located at places of interest.


Philip went on to explain how the Trust works ceaselessly to preserve a wide range of buildings and has a rolling agenda of conservation.


Eric Apperley gave a very hearty, appreciative vote of thanks for a very interesting and informative talk.
