South Holderness Countryside Society
    Registered Charity 701627



The South Holderness Countryside Society was set up in 1983 with the primary aim of 'Making a Better Place for Wildlife'.

We own two large award-winning nature reserves, Beacon Lagoons and Hollym Carrs, and have over 100 subscribing members from all walks of life. In 2009 the Society inherited a farmhouse, its outbuildings and approximately two hectares of land in Hollym near Withernsea. Following recent years of hard work and support from grant organisations and business supporters we have developed this into our headquarters with office, archive/library and meeting/exhibition space. We are aiming to develop the grounds into a mosaic of wildlife habitats. There is still much to do on our 'Ivy House project'. but we feel the time, expense and effort will be worth it in the long run!

As a registered Charity we are dedicated to educating members of the public on matters relating to natural history and conservation. We organise monthly indoor meetings, freely open to the public, covering the spectrum of wildlife and conservation interest. We promote educational visits to our reserves and interpretation is provided through our close links with local schools.
