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.
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.
