Our Society

Skipton Civic Society is part of the national network of civic societies, Civic Voice, and also a member of Yorkshire  and Humberside Association of Civic Societies (YHACS).

We are a voluntary body and charity,  governed in accordance with a constitution.  We have no paid staff.  We are reliant for administration on funding and donations from members, sales of our publications, donations or special grants.  The work of the Society is all carried out by our enthusiastic volunteers.
