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.

Sightings

 

cockatoos.jpg

The Yellow-tailed Black-cockatoos are back in town - as Sue's snap shows!  At Shoreham, we sometimes see flocks of up to 20 birds.

These endangered cockatoos are seasonal visitors and feed on seeds and grubs.  They are one of Australia's largest cockatoos and have a strong beak for gouging wood to a depth of several centimetres to find grubs. 

As their name suggests, they have large pale yellow panels in their tails.  They also have a yellow spot on what bird-people call their "ear coverts".  The females have a bright yellow spot - the males have a dull yellow version.  Other differences between adult sexes are that the females have a pale grey eye-ring (the males' are pink) and the females have a grey-white upper bill (the males' are grey-black).

 

 

Howard Street Walking Track Working Bees

  • The Howard Street Walking Track is an important, direct linkage between the two halves of Shoreham.  
  • Following the successes of our late November and March efforts, the next Working Bees is planned for the Howard Street walking track on Saturday, 23rd June - from 09.30am - 12.00pm.   Please join us for morning tea and a chat together afterwards
  • The intention is to continue to tidy up the track by clearing weeds, such as blackberry, and fallen vegetation. 
  • Please see our Calendar for further details.

Protecting the Buxton Open Air Chapel

  • In great news for the community, Council voted unanimously on Tuesday, 13th February to rescind the sale of part of Buxton Reserve on which the Buxton Chapel, dedicated to Cyril and Ivan Young sits. Instead, it will acquire the small portion of the chapel in private hands.  
  • At a public meeting held on 14th April, it was resolved that a ‘Friends’ of the Cyril Young Memorial Chapel group be formed.  A Working Group has since been assembled to further that aim.
  • The first meeting of the Working Group was conducted on Saturday, 12th May.  Excellent progress is being made.  There was good representation from the Young family, the YMCA, the SCA and the broader community and general agreement on general aims and directions.  The Historical Society could not be represented but there have already been exchanges of information between the Society and the other parties. Two of the local residents were former campers at Camp Buxton.
  • Next Meeting is planned for:  2.00pm Saturday, June 16th at the Shoreham Community Hall.

The Common - We’re making The Common safer - and much greener!

  • The COMMUNITY PLANTING DAY on the Common on Saturday, 21st April 2018 from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM was a great success with a second community working bee completing plantings along the new track adjacent the eastern boundary.

  • In association with the Mornington Peninsula Shire, we’re striving to make our park safer for children and passive recreation.  So…

 
No Driving or Parking on the Shoreham Village Common please !
The Shoreham Tennis Club area is not affected.

 

Please park on the Byrnes Road shoulder.
Thank you for respecting the new works and the wishes of our community.
This will also let our new plantings get going too!
