Yetminster Community Project

YCP is run by a small group of hardworking people who are interested in encouraging the use of the Yetminster Jubilee Hall for a wide range of activities, and to use any funds generated by these to help with projects that improve the hall and make it attractive to both present, and hopefully new, users and also to help with other village projects that are seeking funding.

We have an exciting calendar of events and generally have two or three Artsreach theatre experiences a year, various village quizzes and musical concerts all of which are very popular.

Since our beginning in early 2015 we have organised well over 20 events in the hall, and donated around £3500 to the hall and to local good causes. Hall equipment bought includes a fridge-freezer, coffee machine, baby changer, and new chairs. We have also supported the Scouts, the Guides, the St Andrews CoE School, the Bowls Club, the Cricket Club, the church clock fund and Art4All with funds to help with various worthwhile projects. In addition, we help to organise the Coffee & Cake mornings on the first Wednesday each month.

Please contact us on ycp873@gmail.com to be put on our mailing list if you would like to hear about our events and reserve tickets in advance.
