Local Conservation Groups
The Worthing Society ----- Registered as Worthing’s official conservation group with English Heritage, the voluntary organisation is a watchdog to safeguard the borough’s heritage, and evolved from the earlier Worthing Civic Society set up by Miss Pat Baring.
The Yellow Brick Society ----- a relatively short-lived Voluntary organisation of conservationists, set up under chairman Richard Pye with the help of his friend Chris Hare, it took its name from the colour of the brick used in some of the town’s remaining late 18th and early 19th century buildings, a brick which was fired from an outcrop of clay which once existed on Worthing’s foreshore.
Save the Dome ------ Voluntary organisation set up in 1988 to campaign to save the building and for the continuance of cinema in its ground floor auditorium.
