Yorkshire & Humberside Association of Civic Socities AGM

25th January 2020

Cedar Court Hotel, Harogate

The Cedar Court Hotel, Harrogate was the venue for the Annual General Meeting of YHACS on 25th January 2020.

Our Civic society was represented at a dinner on the Friday evening and on Saturday morning Chris Dicken gave a live demonstration of the new plaques website (www.harrogateplaques.org) before leading a group to see some of the High Harrogate plaques.

During the afternoon we heard talks from:
• Professor Rick Battarbee (UCL) on the implications of global warming on the planet’s ecosystem and more locally on the work being done by the Addingham Civic Society.
• Jemima Parker from Zero Carbon Harrogate on how our local area can become zero carbon
• Joan Humble, Chair of Civic Voice, on the parliamentary work that the Civic Movement is engaged in.

This is always a great event for exchanging ideas and inspiration from societies across Yorkshire and the Humber.
