AGM and Annual Report & Accounts for 2019-20
The 2020 AGM was cancelled due to Covid19 (see letter here). The Accounts for the year ending December 2019 and the minutes of the last AGM in May 2019 can be read here on the Reports & Accounts page.
The Moseley Society Annual Review for 2019-2020 looking back to the year that is past, and forward to what is likely to be a challenging year ahead, can be read here. At present The Moseley Society Committee and the specialist sub-groups are busy trying to maintain as many of our usual activities as possible. These include responding to planning and licensing applications, caring for the dovecote garden and sharing information with our members. The value of a membership organisation has been evident by how quickly volunteers were found to help support Moseley Together and the sharing of useful information for the wider community. We would like to come out of the current crisis as a larger and even more active Civic Society and that is why we would like your help to recruit some additional, and younger, committee members now.

The Moseley Society – Caring for an historic area of Birmingham
Moseley is a diverse, vibrant suburb three miles south of central Birmingham, with fine Victorian and Edwardian housing, attractive green spaces and historic buildings. It is continually under pressure for further development, not always in keeping with the character of the area. The Moseley Society was formed to conserve and enhance the environment of Moseley and respond to development issues in collaboration with voluntary organisations and public bodies, increase understanding of Moseley’s heritage and encourage community participation.
Read the newly updated Moseley Society Chronological Summary 1979-2019 for a full chronology of all the events influenced or instigated by or influencing the Moseley Society over the past 40 years (click to view) and to find out more about the Society, click here.
We continually monitor and respond to local development proposals and planning applications (click to view), with the aim of encouraging the enhancement of the Moseley environment, both built and natural. Everyone can play a part in keeping Moseley looking good by reporting problems to the Council via their website (click here to see how).
We also maintain the historic Dovecote and Icehouse on the former Moseley Hall estate, which the Society was instrumental in preserving (click to read more). We have created an attractive award-winning 18th century style garden around the Dovecote and are keen to enlist the support of knowledgeable gardeners to help with its maintenance and further development.
The Society plays an active part in local events such as the Moseley Festival and has an enthusiastic Local History group which welcomes new members (click to read more).
