Margate Civic Society
"The love of our town leads us"
The Society's purpose and aims are to encourage high standards of architecture and town planning in Margate and its environs; to stimulate public interest and care for the history and character of the area; and to encourage the preservation, development and improvement of features of general amenity and historical interest.

To this end, Town Pride awards are given annually to those buildings which have been refurbished, cleaned or modified and which, in the opinion of the Society, have enhanced the appearance of the town.  New high-quality buildings are also eligible for the award.  This year's winners can be seen on the "Town Pride" page of this site.

New members of the Society are always welcome.  If you are interested in joining, please fill in the enrolment form at this link and send it to the Treasurer, Mike Wilton, at the address shown on the form.
