Worthing Journal Article – June 23

The Worthing Society recently held our 40th Annual General Meeting which is a tremendous achievement in the field of conservation. During this time the Society has saved many of the heritage buildings we enjoy today as part of Worthing’s legacy.

 I was honoured to be elected as Chairman for another year and I am pleased to tell you that we have a  very strong Committee ready to take on future challenges. The support of my colleagues  and their expertise has been invaluable.  We feel the work of the conservationist has never been more needed to achieve a balanced way forward so that our heritage can be respected when new development and changes take place. We must also become ‘Guardians’ of our green infrastructure and open spaces. Conservation means being aware of and respecting the total environment.

To highlight our work we are taking part in the June ‘Worthing Heritage Festival.’   Details of our talks : ’Worthing Buildings Lost  and Saved’,  ‘Jane Austen, the Worthing Connection ‘and the’ Blue Plaque Heritage Trail  Walk ‘ can be viewed on our website  or  book at :


We welcome new members of all ages and hope you will be able to join us at some of our Heritage Events.
