Brewood Civic Society held its inaugural meeting in 1970, and has a membership today of almost 800 residents. The Aims of the Society are:
- To promote the heritage, character and historical atmosphere of Brewood Village and the surrounding area.
- To present lectures, talks and films on conservation, historical monuments, canals, trees, etc.
- To act as an advisory body to South Staffordshire Council on planning and other matters concerning Brewood.
- Not to preserve village features just because they are old but to temper preservation with progress.
- To be constructive and keep the village tidy and pleasant for future generations.
The Society organises a number of events including illustrated talks, walks, visits to places of interest, and exchange visits with other civic and amenity societies. It also runs competitions for hanging baskets and floral containers, and the ‘Frank Dearden Awards’, which encourage appreciation, awareness, involvement and participation by young people. The Society was instrumental in the village being designated one of the first three ‘Conservation Areas’ in Staffordshire.
