The Mendip Society is a "can do" organisation, but without your help it can't do anything. 

There’s lots to do right away but even if you can only support us in spirit, you are most welcome.

Here are just a few suggestions of how you can get involved and support The Mendip Society:


• Become a member
• Ask your friends to join
• Act as a planning watchdog for the Society
• Help organise events and talks
• Write articles for the Society's newsletter
• Sit on a committee
• Lead walks
• Dry stone walling

• Pick up any litter, cans or bottles you see lying around and recycle them
• Report fly tipping and abandoned cars to the district council
• Be a youth or conservation task leader
• Help to manage Slader's Leigh or Tania's Wood
• Consider leaving the Society a legacy
• Influence your councillors and MPs


If you have any special talents, do let us know. Are you (or were you) a planner, a solicitor, a botanist, a dry stone waller, a fundraiser, a keen public speaker, an accountant, a secretary, a programmer? If so, you can help and we’d love to hear from you!
