Tall Trees welcomes Service families based in Ilchester and the surrounding area to enjoy a range of facilities, events and activities.

Your community hub

Tall Trees Community Centre is located 2 miles from RNAS Yeovilton, situated in the heart of the Service Families Accommodation estate in the village of Ilchester. 

The Community Centre aims to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere that offers families a sense of belonging and mutual support in a warm relaxed environment which consists of a multi-functional community room, children’s room and a bar area with dance floor. 

Actively engaging with the community centre can provide a really important social outlet and even help you to develop a support network among other Service families. Interested? Come down to Tall Trees and join the community.
