What We Stand For
We stand for protecting and preserving all that is best in the heritage of the town and district and improving the environment for the present future generations.
That is why we, as a group, try to ensure that local people have a voice in matters concerning a wide range of issues.
We act as a co-ordinator and consultative body by liaising with local authorities, planning committees and decision makers in the pursuit of the Society's objectives.
Who We Are
We are an entirely voluntary organisation of people who live and work in Rotherham Borough and are driven by a deep care for its past, present and future.
The Society is steered by an Executive Committee which is elected at the annual AGM in April and brings together a wide range of skills and experience, from lthe wider community.
