WE STRIVE TO MAKE THE WIGSTONS A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE, WORK AND SHOP
The Society was founded in 1978 when the junior school in Bell Street was threatened with demolition. It was considered that the school buildings were an important legacy from Victorian Wigston and they should and could be put to good community use.
The battle was lost, unfortunately. Sainsbury’s now stands on the site of the old school and concerned local people were determined that this loss should not be repeated.
The Society was formed under the auspices of the former Civic Trust which provided a model constitution. Members elect the officers and an executive committee, consisting of the officers and between 5 and 11 of the members.
There is an annual subscription to cover administrative expenses and room hire for meetings.
Meetings are currently held on the first Wednesday of the month from 7.00pm to 9.00pm at Age UK, Hawthorn House in Paddock Street, Wigston.
