Thornbury and District Community Association
The Chantry is owned and managed by Thornbury and District Community Association (TDCA), which is a registered charity (number 301639). The objectives of the charity are to provide facilities for the community in and around Thornbury, in order to enable the advancement of education, social welfare, leisure and recreation.
The Chantry was purchased by TDCA in 1966 and was the first community centre in Thornbury. It has been maintained and improved over the decades through the efforts of its Trustees and Volunteers. There is a team of part-time paid staff who run the centre on behalf of the TDCA.
The Chantry is a wonderful facility in the heart of Thornbury which can play a huge part in maintaining a strong sense of community as Thornbury grows.
