What we do
Introduction to Love Yeovil
Love Yeovil is a small but dedicated group working to achieve a positive vibrant town centre for the community and businesses. Currently run by a management group of 4 people one of which is also the Marketing and Events Coordinator (MEC) for Love Yeovil, which is a paid position. The other members are volunteers who are passionate about seeing the town thrive and grow.
Love Yeovil has historically been run on funding predominantly from local Councils, with some contributions coming directly from businesses. By working in partnership with council officials, the group has been able to assist and manage the regular town centre events, provide publicity support to businesses and organisations and network to promote the town.
Love Yeovil holds monthly stakeholder meetings and the AGM takes place to democratically vote members onto the Love Yeovil board and the board also meets monthly.
Background to Love Yeovil
Love Yeovil evolved from the original Town Team, this was set up with full support from South Somerset District Council with the aim of marketing the town, to manage and enable a calendar of events for the town centre in a bid to increase football to the town’s high street and retail core.
Love Yeovil is currently an unincorporated not for profit organisation that sits under the umbrella of the Yeovil Chamber of Commerce and benefits from their Public liability cover and so on. It is presently going through the process of changing its legal status to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), it is hoped that this will make the organisation more eligible to funding opportunities that are currently unavailable to Love Yeovil.
