Welcome to the website of The Harpenden Society, Harpenden’s Civic Society.
The Harpenden Society exists for everyone who appreciates the richness of life in Harpenden and wants to ensure that the town remains a green and pleasant place in which to live, work or visit.
The Society was founded in 1930, is a registered Charity (278154), and currently has over 1,000 members, and a very active executive committee and a number of subcommittees or task groups to deal with particular activities or campaigns.

Despite various campaigns over the years, litter still remains a problem in some areas of Harpenden and there is probably not much that individuals can do about it. However, overflowing litterbins are also an irritation to the beholder and in addition give the impression of an uncaring community, even though the reverse is probably true as it shows residents are at least going to the trouble of using them! St Albans District Council has a contractor whose job is to clear the street bins regularly but if you see an overflowing bin there is a 'hotline' on which you can report the matter: it's 0845-125-8000 and recently after some pressure from some the society, it now has an out-of-hours answering system. Do please use it - it keeps the District Council and its contractor 'on their toes' and makes the town look better for everyone.
