What you can do - including becoming a member of the Mendip Society

The Mendip Society is a "can do" organisation, but without your help it can't do anything. There's lots of things you can start doing right away, but even if you are just with us in spirit, welcome.

Here are just a few suggestions:

  • Become a Member of the Mendip Society
  • Get your friends to join the Society
  • Become a voluntary Mendip Hills Ranger
  • Pick up any litter, cans or bottles you see lying about and recycle them
  • Report fly tipping and abandoned cars to the district council
  • Act as a planning watchdog for the Society
  • Help organise events and talks
  • Make coffee and tea at meetings
  • Write articles for the Society's newsletter
  • Get onto a committee
  • Lead walks
  • Be a youth or conservation task leader
  • Help to manage Slader's Leigh
  • Consider leaving the Society a legacy
  • Influence your councillors and MPs
  • Get your village to prepare a village design statement.

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 fund raiser, a keen public speaker, an accountant, a secretary, a programmer? If so, you can help!
