About the Society

The purpose of the Horsham Society is to watch over the interests of the town, to guard its heritage, to promote good planning and design and to speak up when it believes decisions critical to Horsham are being considered. We have a strong membership, a pedigree stretching back to 1955, an influential reputation and we are one of the largest civic societies in south-east England. 

We publish leaflets and books. Members also receive a newsletter, packed with interest and published eleven times a year, which contains news on topical issues of concern, articles dealing with the history and future of the town, and a busy letters page. Members are encouraged to submit their own articles and views on issues that concern them or their neighbours, and a lively exchange of opinion usually results.

Planning issues are a major concern for the Society as changes made today, for good or ill, will last for decades and perhaps much longer.
