About the hub

The proposal for Thornley community space at the old Thornley school will aim to create a “social hub”.  Offering a place for people to meet for social interaction and to promote and facilitate activities for the people of Thornley and surrounding parishes. The community hub will aim to promote intergenerational activity and social cohesion and therefore engage and strengthen the local community.

It is a strong appeal from many to use this gift  from Lord Derby to recreate the spirit of Thornley that for some, thought to have been lost for many years.
