Drimpton and Netherhay Youth Club

Drimpton and Netherhay Youth Club (D&NYC) was formed in February 2009 after the village survey showed a need for a youth facility in the area.
The Youth Club provides an evening of fun activity in a safe and caring environment for the children and young people of the Drimpton and local area. It is for children aged 7-15yrs, and is open to all. Children will be encouraged to stay on as Junior Leaders on their 16th birthday. We are committed to equal opportunities with regard to ethnic origin, religious beliefs, disability, gender and sexuality. We have dedicated youth leaders, all CRB checked and a first aider at every event. We are fully insured.
The objectives of the group are charitable and for public benefit.
Meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of the month from 6.30 to 8pm at Drimpton Village Hall. Activities include wii, table tennis, snooker, table football, air hockey, twister, etc along with team games and outdoor activities if weather permits. We also run a popular tuck shop selling snacks and drinks. As a treat, special event evenings and outings to bowling and local attractions are organised.
We are currently trialling Youth Club Film Nights on the 4th Friday of the month, which are proving very popular,  If you need more information call John Lock (Youth Leader) on day / eve or email me

Light Lunch Ladies

We provide monthly Light Lunches at the Village Hall with a range of homemade soups on offer and everyone in the village is invited to come on the second Wednesday of the month at 12.30pm. During Advent and Lent we work with the two village churches to provide lunches. We also provide two grand annual Lunches – one in the summer and the other in the run-up to Christmas. These are always sell-out occasions. All profits are donated to a range of nominated charities.

The Annual Summer Lunch always has a theme and everyone is invited to join in. The 2011 Summer Lunch theme was 'Masquerade' and many imaginative masks were worn. In 2012 the Jubilee was, naturally, celebrated in fine style with flags, bunting and 'coronation' fare!



In the village hall (subject to no other hall bookings):
Tuesdays 2 - 5pm - all year
Thursday 7.30 - 9.30pm (Oct. to April)
Two mats, woods of various sizes available.

The Garden Club

Welcome to the Garden Club, or to give it its proper title, the Clapton, Wayford, Drimpton and District Horticultural Society, which draws its membership from Drimpton and the villages around, meeting monthly in Drimpton Village Hall.

There are about 50 members, with all sorts of garden-related interests, from flowers to fruit and potatoes to preserves. There is a meeting on the third Wednesday evening every month; often with a guest speaker, here’s a flavour of some of the topics:
No Dig Gardening; Making a Pond; Wildlife Garden; Container Planting; Cottage Gardens; Bees; Gardens and their role in Hospice care; Global Plant Trekking and the very popular Quiz and Puds.

We also arrange a Potato Day each February, as well as the occasional outing and each August we host the Flower Show.

We are a small friendly club, visitors and new members are welcome to any of the meetings.
