Join Us

If you are interested in the past, present and future of Sheringham and its neighbouring parishes we warmly invite you to join us now.

Our aim is to preserve the best features of the town and surrounding area from developments which might destroy their character. We are not anti-progress but are concerned that necessary development should be sensitive and appropriate. We also exist to record the past and publicise our area to the wider world.

As a volunteer body we:

Monitor and comment upon local planning applications

Run a long-established art exhibition

Manage two visitor attractions –

The Fishermen’s Heritage Centre & The Peter Coke Shell Gallery

Arrange social events and excursions

 

We work closely with the Sheringham Museum Trust, which runs The Mo (Sheringham Museum). The Mo contains extensive displays on the history of Sheringham as a fishing village and later, especially during the Edwardian period, as a fashionable resort. It also contains many of the town’s former RNLI lifeboats.

Since being established in 1979 as the Sheringham and District Preservation Society (Registered Charity No. 280951) we have been involved in (and contributed £150,000 towards) a wide variety of local projects which have conserved the local environment and made life more pleasant for residents and visitors.

We are affiliated to the Campaign for the Preservation of Rural England, the Association of Historic Towns and Villages and other similar bodies. Further details of our activities are given elsewhere on this site.

If you are in agreement with our aims we welcome your support and active involvement. Please print off the following page, fill in the details below to apply for membership, and send the completed form to: The Membership Secretary, Sheringham and District Society, The Fishermen’s Heritage Centre, West Cliff, Sheringham, NR26 8JT.
