Civic societies receive boost from new charity


Local civic societies dedicated to improving and maintaining their communities have been given hope by a new charity.

Civic Voice aims to get more people involved in protecting their area from over-zealous or out-of-place development.

It takes the place of the Civic Trust, which represented more than 700 civic societies, but closed because of a lack of funds a year ago.

David Sillito reports.
