The Chantry Centre needs YOU!

Could you spare a few hours each week and help make a real difference to your local community?

Trustees of the Chantry Centre in Long Street, Dursley, have joined forces with local community group, World Jungle, to help breathe new life in to the building so it can fulfil its potential of being a fantastic resource and venue for the local community to use.

The Chantry Centre is located in the heart of Dursley and is home to the famous Lister Hall, a regular host of visiting bands, productions by the Dursley Operatic and Dramatic Society and concerts by Dursley Male Voice Choir to name but a few.

High running costs have left the building in need of some work and volunteers are urgently required to get involved in a whole range of activities including DIY, decorating and design.

Mark Prowse of The Chantry Centre says:

“The Chantry Centre is full of so much potential, an amazing building just needing a bit of love and some hands-on hard work to give it a face lift!

 We are looking for people to volunteer their skills for an hour or so on Wednesdays from 10am-2pm and get involved in transforming the space.

The centre is a super resource for the whole community to enjoy and use. We are excited to have World Jungle working on this project to help maintain and develop The Chantry Centre’s reputation as the major entertainment destination in Dursley.”

The project hopes to see the Chantry Centre become an active community resource which is used by all sections of the community throughout the daytime, evenings and over the weekend.
