What is the Herne Hill Society?

Herne Hill is the area of South London that corresponds to the postal district SE24. Our Society was founded over 30 years ago. We are what is often known as an amenity society: an independent charity funded by members’ subscriptions, and democratically run by elected volunteers.

We are delighted to have Brockwell Vets, WBC and Tutor Doctor Dulwich as Corporate Members of the Society.
