Chantry Quiz Night
Next Quiz Night is Thursday 20th June. Please see our events page for more information.
TDCA AGM - Monday 20th May 2013
The Association’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 20th May 2013 at 7:30pm at the Chantry – Association members and other interested persons are all invited and welcome to attend. We hope to see a good turn out.
The Chantry continues to be an important meeting place in Thornbury for a wide range of groups, classes and societies just as it has been for over 40 years.
Many of the jobs that may once have been done by keen volunteer members of the Association are now fulfilled by staff, but the concept of community is still vital and community associations still need to be governed by a volunteer management committee.
Could you play a part? We need more trustees to share the load and to expand our skill base. New blood is always important and needed to bring new ideas and new enthusiasm to any organisation. In that way developments can better reflect the needs of Thornbury today.
If you could spare a few hours a month to help, or would like to join our committee and play your part in moulding the future of the Association then please get in touch with our Chair, Phyllida Parsloe, via the Chantry office on 01454 414268

Welcome to The Chantry in Thornbury, South Gloucestershire.
The Chantry is a fine listed building dating in part from Tudor times. For the past forty years it has been owned by and served as the home of Thornbury and District Community Association (TDCA), a registered charity serving the people of Thornbury and the surrounding area.
Where are we?

From the South – M5 Junction 16 Almondsbury/Thornbury. Take A38 north. At the second set of traffic lights (approx 5 miles) Thornbury will be signposted to the left (B4061).
