Hiring the Jubilee Hall for a wedding (1947).
Weddings Receptions were a regular feature at the Jubilee Hall in the middle of the last century. And this receipt issued by Winsham Parish Council, demonstrates that then, as now, the hall offered a low cost solution to the problem of catering for a medium sized celebration. Of course, then, cost was not the only consideration. Not many people had cars, so it was not so easy to travel from Church to another venue. Even then  1 7s 6p however it was  reasonably priced, as would be the Jubilee Hall be in 2016. The present value of this figure, using Retail Prices Index as a guide would be about 50. To-day (2016) the hire of Jubilee Hall would cost about 100 for a similar event-still very reasonable. It provides a charming and well equipped venue , well worth consideration.
The ownership and management of the Jubilee Hall transferred to the Jubilee Hall Management Committee in 1965.
