About us

Welcome to the Shoreham Community website which has been created to give the community a voice and to facilitate communication. It's a place to share ideas, information, skills, resources - a place to find out what's going on in the community - clubs, societies, special interest groups, events, anything that Shoreham residents and visitors might enjoy or find of interest. 

It is an initiative of the Shoreham Community Association Inc. (SCA), managed by SCA volunteers with all cost burdens being met by SCA membership fees. We are keen to create an active and informed community. Find out how you can become a member here. Your support is important.

On our site you'll find information about SCA Projects, upcoming community events on the Community Noticeboard and more.  Details for local events are found on the Calendar page.

Protecting the Buxton Open Air Chapel

On the 11th July, 2017, the Mornington Peninsula Shire published a Notice of Intention to Sell Land - part of Buxton Reserve on which the Buxton Chapel sits. We had until 11th August to make submissions concerning the proposed sale. 

The chapel hosted religious services during the YMCA camp years and is a memorial to two young men who were killed on service during World War II.  

To allow the sale, the Buxton Reserve land concerned would have to be rezoned from its current Public Conservation and Resource Zone to residential. 

On-site Meeting with Mayor and Councillors

Four SCA representatives, including Sue Boggan (who is a veteran of the original campaign in the 1990s to save Camp Buxton) and Neville Wale from the Flinders District Historical Society, recently escorted our Mayor Bev Colomb and Councillors David Gill and Frank Martin for an inspection of the Chapel site.

The Young family has created a web-site in honour of their relatives which contains further information about Cyril and Ivan Young's war service and also interesting photos and stories about Camp Buxton in particular.  Please click here to visit it.
