Welcome to the new-look MyThornbury!

We've had a major makeover, but don't worry - all the events, listings and features you know and love are still here. It's easier to find what you're looking for, with a new search box at the top of the page. And now we're mobile and tablet-friendly too. Give it a whirl and let us know what you think.

There's a new competition on MyThornbury this month: you could win a meal for two at Romy's Kitchen, plus you could win life membership of Lighterlife, plus a £50 voucher.

And for parents with children choosing schools, we have a new feature page showing School Open Days in our catchment area.

Save Thornbury's Composting

Thornbury’s very successful Community Composting site is threatened with closure, as South Gloucestershire Council is proposing to withdraw funding. The composters have a plan to cut the cost from £130,000 to around £10,000, but need Council support until the new arrangements can be put into place. The future of the site will be discussed at a Council meeting on 5th November. Sustainable Thornbury is asking you to support the Composters. Click below to find out how.


Raised in Thornbury

Thornbury Churches Together are planning a 15-piece Easter art trail, based around the 14 Stations of the Cross plus the resurrection, but with the depiction of each Station centred around a place in Thornbury.
The purpose is to show that the Easter story isn't just something from 2000 years ago that happened in Jerusalem, but is something that is relevant to people here in Thornbury today.
