Independent of any other organization, the Society speaks without fear, favour or prejudice. Its concern is solely with the welfare of the town and its surroundings. It believes that nothing but the best is good enough for the area and its people.
Visitors leave Faversham eagerly anticipating their next trip. It is a town of individual character, more attractive than most, and set in fine countryside. Today, when the face of the area is changing more dramatically than ever before, the Society works to ensure that its individuality is not destroyed. Positive efforts will always be needed to realise the full potential of Faversham as a great place in which to live and work.
The Society is a registered charity with a Board of Trustees and three standing committees. Each area of activity is managed and run by teams of energetic volunteers so that all income, including donations, is ploughed back.
