Covid -19 – Safety and Social Distancing
Thank you for visiting the South Hams Society Web site. As part of our arrangements to comply with the Government’s instructions, we have postponed our Events programme until further notice. We will review the situation when the Covid-19 emergency measures are relaxed.
In the meantime, we will continue to post ‘Calls to action’ for urgent planning cases where we believe the proposed development would cause harm to the South Hams landscape and beauty. These calls will be for action which you can take safely online.
Meanwhile, if you are out exercising on any of our lovely beaches, do please take a bag for and collect what litter you can. Informal beach cleans can continue! Stay safe and healthy and let’s help others do that too.
Events are open to everyone, except where stated members only. 2021 sees the 60th Anniversary of the foundation of the South Hams Society. Look out for further events and activities to mark this major milestone!
