Hamilton Civic Society
Stimulating interest in the town of Hamilton
Hamilton has had a Civic Society since 1929. It was established with the aims of keeping a watchful eye on the amenities of the town, and the preservation of what was beautiful and of artistic worth.
Today the aims of the society are “to promote cultural and civic activities and to increase the knowledge available to the citizens of the town.” The society meets its aims by offering a programme of talks by speakers who have specialist knowledge relating to the working of the town, its history or future development. Members also enjoy visits to places of interest both in the town and beyond.
Expertise and experience in the history of Hamilton among the members enables the Society to provide advice to groups or individuals wishing to explore particular areas of local history and to act as a consultant to those who are anxious to ensure that developments within the town are appropriately handled. The Society is currently compiling a photographic record of listed buildings within the town for reference purposes.
