Happy New Year to everyone, Lots of activities happening this month at the Chantry so here is the latest update.



THANK YOU to all of you who supported us at the Tescos bags for life appeal. £1000 has been raised towards our heating project.

The restoration of the windows is going very well, this will have a huge impact on how the building looks and also improve the insulation qualities so we should be warmer.

Improvements are still taking place in the bar and it will look great. We will keep you updated!

We offer very competitive rates for room hire so please do contact us if you are interested in running your own course or classes .



We have regular classes with U3A groups, Pilates, Ballet, Yoga, Tai chi, for a full list of our regular classes please go to our website www.thechantry.org.uk
