Thornbury Christmas Lights Association


The Christmas Lights Association was formed in 1991 with the sole purpose of continuing the provision of a Christmas Lights display in Thornbury.
It supports a small band of volunteers who give their time in all winds and weathers to maintain, repair, erect and take down the lights display that Thornbury has enjoyed for countless years!
We believe this to be of the order of 700 man hours of effort. The electricity for those fittings, is provided and hence ‘donated’ by the individual businesses. When not in use the fittings are stored at a local premises free of charge. In the true sense, this is a community led and funded display.
The lights display is renowned both locally and further afield. It draws numerous visitors to the town over the festive period. Many Councils have to pay a commercial rate for the provision of their lights display. Thornbury’s comes for free!

Thornbury Town and District Residents Association, (TTadra)


This group was set up following two public meetings, in order to engage with local, regional and, if necessary, national government over local issues concerning the residents of Thornbury and the surrounding villages.

The immediate aim is to engage with Thornbury Town Council and South Glos Council over the recent changes to the centre of Thornbury, and to ensure that trading on the High Street is successfully revitalised, whilst also addressing and reversing the problems caused by regular traffic congestion on the surrounding roads and the consequent and unwelcome rise in airborne pollution in those areas.

Thornbury U3A


Thornbury University of the Third Age (U3A) was founded in 1997 and is now one of the largest organisations in the town with over 1500 members.

It provides a wide range of educational, social and leisure activities and is an excellent way of meeting people and making friends. There is no age limit on membership but you need to have ceased full-time employment as most groups meet during the day, either in members’ homes or halls in the local area.
