Recipient Org: Description The Ditcheat Jubilee Hall is one of the key focal points for the local community providing a facility for use by local residents and groups for recreational, educational and leisure purposes. Whilst the Trustees do not directly run activities we facilitate the provision of space and resources for local groups to access at an affordable rate. All activities held within the hall are open to anyone to join. We have several groups, who on a regular basis use the hall for the benefit of isolated or elderly members of the community, for example a Village Lunch(approximately 30 people attend) and a regular coffee morning (approximately 60 people attend). Leisure groups include Art( 20 people), Bowls(12 people) and Badminton(10 people), providing stimulation and socialisation at a minimal cost. More physical activities such as Keep Fit(10), Country Dancing(20) and Pilates(16) are also regular events. There is an active amateur dramatic group who put on regular productions, enabling local residents to accress theatre type productions that they would not otherwise attend. In addition there are several musical concerts a year, again providing an opportunity to experience this type of production( each showing has an audience of up to 100). During the winter months Ditcheat Big Screen show current films without the need to travel to Yeovil or Wells, and this facility has been used for children's matinees aimed at those families who would not normally be able to afford to attend a cinema due to expense and lack of public transport.
