Friends of Ham Hill

The Friends of Ham Hill is a charity supporting education, conservation, improvement and community activities at Ham Hill Country Park.

About Us

The Friends of Ham Hill is a registered charity established to support and promote education, conservation, improvement and community activities at Ham Hill Country Park, working in collaboration with South Somerset District Council (SSDC) and local community groups and organisations.

We were initially formed as an unincorporated association (effectively a small volunteer community group). In 2018, we became a registered charity, enabling us to seek larger grants and donations.

The Friends work in collaboration with the SSDC Ranger team to look after and improve the park.

We raise funds for Ham Hill, which helps provide educational and recreational activities, fund tools for the volunteer Rangers and deliver those “extras” (large and small) that fall outside the realm of the core management of the park by South Somerset District Council.

It’s still very icy across the top of Ham Hill so please take care if you’re passing through. If you managed to get out in the snow yesterday and took some pictures whilst walking around the park please do share them with us. Here are a couple from us; a sunny stone circle but snowy sky taken by Helen and one looking out of our work vehicle when the snow stopped 💚#snowday #LoveYourPark See MoreSee Less
