As the town’s civic society one of the most important roles that the Woodbridge Society performs is to keep a keen eye on how the town develops.
It does this by monitoring all planning applications with a view to commenting in ways that will ensure that Woodbridge’s built environment retains its character.
The Society’s first talk this Spring is all about getting the best out of the planning system. The talk will be given by Bob Kindred, a planning expert, who will ask the question: Are You Being Served? How to Influence the Planning System.
The meeting will be on Wednesday 6th March at 7.30pm in the Abbey School Hall (access from Cumberland Street). It will be preceded by the Society’s Annual General Meeting.
A month later the talk will be on the fascinating title of Brainy Dogs. It will be given by Helen Fairweather who is the chief executive of the Felixstowe-based charity Headway Suffolk. The charity works with prisoners at Hollesley Bay to train dogs to work with people who suffer from head injury and brain damage. Helen will talk about this work. The meeting will be held on Wednesday 3rd April at 7.30pm, again in the Abbey School Hall.
Visitors will be very welcome to both meetings.
