We are campaigning -
March Buildings needing TLC

It seems that we have done some good and that many of them are now being done up with help and advice from FDC. Three cheers to FDC for their good work here.

Or maybe not?

Conservation areas of Chatteris, March and Whittlesey have- for the first time - been placed on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register.

The recent placing of the conservation area of March, and of Whittlesey and Chatteris, has come a great disappointment and a shock. We have been asking about individual buildings in March, Whittlesey and Chatteris, which everyone is concerned about, at regular meetings with David Oliver and conservation officers over the last few years. We have been assured every one is being looked at and we have seen the differences taking place. The March Society will be asking questions about this situation.



We are a fairly young civic society for the market town of March in Cambridgeshire, England. We are involved in conservation and preservation and have monthly meetings where speakers are invited to talk on subjects related to the past, present or future of March and the surrounding area.

From September our meetings will held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at March Library at 7.00pm and, to help make ends meet, it was decided at the AGM on July 2nd that entrance will now be £3.00 for non-members and £2.00 for members. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.

If you would like to join the society, the membership fee is £5 per year or £8 for two people living at the same address.




Please look below, there has been a change to the monthly programme. As it is such a busy time of year we will postpone the Woodland Trust meeting until the new year.


We look forward to seeing you at March Christmas Market on Sunday December 3rd, and our tree will be in St Peter’s Christmas Tree Festival from December 8th to 11th.
Our display for March Christmas Market and ‘Street Trees ‘ will be in March Library from November 27th.
