Ham Hill Society

Author: B.C. Gittos

 

On 25th February 1985 the inaugural meeting of the Ham Hill Society took place at the “Prince of Wales” on Ham Hill. A representative of the Y.A.L.H.S. was present. A draft constitution had been drawn up by the Steering Committee and it was discussed and voted upon by the gathering of interested parties. Having agreed a constitution, officers of the new society were elected and it was officially launched. The objectives of the society were to be threefold:-

(1) To advise statutory bodies on the conservation of Ham Hill.

(2) To give practical assistance with conservation.

(3) To encourage-more advantageous use of Ham Hill.

Membership was set at a minimum of £2. per annum with associate members (under 16 years) being charged £1. Corporate membership would be charged at the same rate as individual members. Mr. Clarke of Montacute was elected the first Chairman. Further details from the Secretary, Mr. Peter Baker, of 40, High Street Stoke-sub-Hamdon.
