Community groups

We are lucky to have a host of hard-working volunteers in West Bay.

Here are some of the groups they run. They are always looking for new members so if you have some time to spare and could give some to the community, get in touch.

Beach Hut Owners Association

Works towards improving the security of beach huts, working with owners and police to reduce vandalism.

The group also works to improve the beach area and ensure a good environment. Members organises Beach Clean days in association with the Marine Conservation Society and social events, including an annual Beach Hut Day.

The Association has a notice board near to the Red Shelter and also issues regular newsletters. It acts as an agent for Beach Hut Sales and members can take out insurance at preferential rates.
