WEST COKER COMMEMORATION FUND AIM
To provide a friendly convenient and safe environment for all community activities
THIS YEAR’S CHAIRMAN OF TRUSTEES: Barbara Martin.
The West Coker Memorial Hall is owned by the village and operated on its behalf by the WCCF, a registered charity. It has its origins in the community’s wish to support servicemen returning from WWI, and was first known as the Liberty Hall. The current building dates from 1983. Here is an extract from the original title deed:
“The property….shall be held upon trust for the promotion of good fellowship, social intercourse, recreation and entertainment, or otherwise as may be found expedient for the benefit of the inhabitants of the Parish of West Coker in the County of Somerset and its vicinity, without distinction of sex or of political religious or other opinions….”
PRESENT AND FUTURE PLANS
The Trustees are working to upgrade the building and facilities to modern standards, particularly for disabled access and environmental efficiency. The major task of replacing the central heating boiler has recently been completed.
The WCCF’s income derives from hire of the facility and rental of the adjacent field. In recent months, the Fund has been extremely grateful to receive improvements grants from the South Somerset District Council, The Wellbeing of Yeovil Association and West Coker Parish Council.
You can also support us by joining our lottery. Tickets are £12 for 12 monthly draws. Sue Hubbard, 5 Manor St., 862531
