We had a fantastic evening on 15 June with members and guests celebrating the launch of Civic Pride, our ale that has been brewed by Two Towers Brewery to help us celebrate our centenary year in 2018. Civic Pride is a modern crafted ale based upon recipes from the time that our Society was formed, which we feel really demonstrates one of the Society’s aims – to learn from our past whilst looking to the future. The evening also launched national Civic Day, when civic societies across the country declared: “We care about where we live!” We were really pleased that Ian Harvey and Sarah James from Civic Voice were able to join us to toast all that the Society has done over the last 99 years and are planning to do in the coming years. Here’s to Civic Pride!
