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.

  • 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, further Working Bees have been planned for the Howard Street walking track on Saturday, 12th May and Saturday, 23rd June - both from 09.30am - 12.00pm. 
  • 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.  
  • A public meeting was held on Saturday, 14th April 2018 at 2:30PM to kick-start a  "Friends" group.   Despite the inclement weather, interest was high and the meeting was very well attended with thirty-two people present with over 10 apologies received.  
  • Speakers on the YMCA history and on the Young brothers were very interesting.  The Young Family brought an amazing collection of memorabilia on Cyril and Ivan so we had many photos to display.  The weather having cleared sufficiently, a small delegation visited the Chapel itself after the meeting.
  • A strong group of 17 people indicated they wish to be part of the Working Group. Local resident and ex Camp Buxton camper Bill Genat will now get things rolling..

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

  • There will be a COMMUNITY PLANTING DAY on the Common on Saturday, 21st April 2018 from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM.

  • Please come along and help plant more indigenous stock together around our new path AND:
    • hear the final project report Phase 1
    • discuss the future Phase 2 (including the results of the parking survey).
    • Please see our Calendar for further details.
  • The Common has been fully opened up - temporary fences protecting newly grassed areas were removed just in time for Christmas!  The new layout proved a resounding success at the last "Under the Tree" function in January.
  • 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!
