Thornhill Community Association Ltd

STAR

STAR is a non-profit organisation set up by parents for parents.

Our aim is to provide opportunities to advance ourselves and others in and round Thornhill. STAR began with a group of friends that saw an opportunity to better themselves while aiding others in the community, and hopefully bringing back that community spirit. We believe that with a little help anyone can achieve their dreams and ambitions.

In the past we have been able to put on training courses, help with childcare fees, provide transport and put people in touch with other groups that can help. We hope to carry this on into our second year.

STAR puts on a weekly coffee session on a Friday afternoon at Leadon court 1-3pm, anyone is welcome to come for support, advice or just a chat. There will be monthly speakers from others to promote their organisations and activities every week to keep the children occupied so you can sit and enjoy.

STAR also has frequent events, these can range from craft fairs, family fundays, trips and parties. These events are usually free or at a small charge so all the family can enjoy. Any upcoming events will be posted on forthcoming events.

We would like to stress, anyone is welcome to come along to our events or any questions feel free to contact us.
