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.

This week at Ham Hill Country Park we have been busy preparing for Bonfire night and continuing with clearance work along the northern spur ramparts. The excellent volunteer team helped us clear an area of encroaching dogwood while we felled Ash with dieback.Sunny days and blue skys have provided us with beautiful views. We have also been enjoying seeing lots of different fungi popping up across the site. #fabulousfungi #LoveYourPark See MoreSee Less
