See Events Page for the Agenda

If any member wishes to stand for election to the Committee in any capacity including that of Chair, Secretary or Treasurer, then a written proposal must be received by me before the start of the meeting. This must state the name of the proposer and the nominee and be signed by both, the nominee also stating that he or she is willing to stand. It can be sent by an email


or by post (address on Contact Page) previously but an original copy must also be available for the records on the night. – Judith Tranter: Secretary of the Society.

Corporate Sponsorship for the MendipSociety

Our Chairman (Richard Frost) has signed up two corporate members to the Society-

1/ Yeo Valley

2/ Wookey Hole

This will be very important to raise the future profile of the Society and  help the Society to play a greater role in the wider Mendip Community.  We hope that this will also attract a younger interest.


our hills

The Mendip Hills sit high above the Somerset countryside in South West England.

The limestone uplands feature dry gorges, caves, sinks and river sources. One of the most famous areas is the Cheddar Gorge and the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is a protected landscape.

our society


The Mendip Society works to conserve and enhance the Mendip Hills and surrounding areas for everyone to enjoy. 

As a registered charity, we organise social activities on the hills for all our members including walks, special interest visits and talks. We also manage some small nature reserves and members are encouraged to be involved with these.
