The Wolverhampton Civic Society was founded in 1960 and in 2010 it merged with the Wolverhampton History and Heritage Society to become the Wolverhampton Civic and Historical Society.

 

Our aims are to promote the city through talks by expert speakers on various topics relating to Wolverhampton, the promotion of local history research, the erection of blue plaques and the scrutinising of planning applications. We are dedicated to promoting the history and heritage of Wolverhampton and ensuring that any new buildings and developments do not adversely affect the character and image of our great city!

 

If you love Wolverhampton why not join us and help us in our aims of promoting Wolverhampton's history and environment. You can download membership forms from here.

 

The following statement has been issued by the Wolverhampton Civic and Historical Society (WC&HS) in response to a ‘proposal’ for a blue plaque to commemorate Enoch Powell, who was Member of Parliament for the constituency of Wolverhampton South West between 1950 and 1974. Final approval of each new plaque is completely at the discretion of the WC&HS committee

Further to previous statements, we can confirm that a tentative proposal for a blue plaque for Enoch Powell was submitted to the WC&HS plaque secretary. During the summer the WC&HS committee discussed this proposal and how best to respond, given the sensitivities surrounding this particular plaque. After full consideration of a range of views the committee could not reach a consensus in support of a plaque for Enoch Powell and the proposal was therefore rejected and the matter closed.

 

The WC&HS currently have over 100 commemorative blue plaques spread across the city. All plaques erected by the WC&HS are privately sponsored and/or funded purely by donations. The WC&HS operates on membership subscription basis and is run entirely by volunteers. Wolverhampton's commemorative blue plaques are just one element of the many WC&HS activities that celebrate the city’s local history and heritage. Please visit our website for more details (www.cityofwolverhampton.com).

 

The quiz will be held on 18th April 2018 at 7.30pm at the Clarendon Hotel, Chapel Ash.
