Share your memories of Wycombe Society as it prepares for anniversary
9:28am Tuesday 10th December 2013 in News
THE High Wycombe Society is appealing for residents and ex-members to share their stores about the society’s early campaigns ahead of its 50 year anniversary.
It was launched as The Rye Protection Society in 1964 in response to plans to build an inner by-pass through the town centre and across a corner of The Rye.
Residents were furious and desperate to protect Wycombe’s premier green space from development – and the society won its battle in 1965.
Campaigners didn’t want the head of steam they had built up to dissipate and so the High Wycombe Society was formed with wider aims to protect the town, its landscape and its heritage.
With the golden anniversary of the formation of the society fast approaching, it wants to get back in touch with former members and residents to help it celebrate 50 years in the town.
