The Chamber has spent considerable time putting together a shoppers guide and map for Thornbury High Street, St Mary Centre and the surrounding streets.
The high quality map has been hand drawn by Richard Edwards of Surroundings in Thornbury.
The map and guide shows the location of many of the local businesses and retail outlets in the town and is aimed at visitors to the local area. It also gives an indication of key events are organised annually in the town.
On the back you'll find adverts from shops and businesses that have contributed towards the cost of the guide, which is free to shoppers.
The map has been distributed to local outlets and to surrounding hotels, the aim being to ensure visitors to the surrounding area are made aware of the beautiful town on their doorstep. Anyone who would be interested in stocking some maps to give out to visitors please contact the Chamber.

It is testament to the fact that the Thornbury Chamber of Commerce is a long established organisation that one of its founder members, Mr Dick Shipp, can only give a rough date to its first meeting being somewhere between the late 1950s and early 1960s.
Originally meetings were held in the Church Institute building, and then around the town on a rota basis, as now. This gives members the chance to sample different conference facilities in and around Thornbury and the hosting members the opportunity to promote their business.
Meetings are now held bi-monthly and continue to give members an opportunity to discuss and influence the direction of business in Thornbury - So take the time to get involved and join the Thornbury Chamber of Commerce - it's part of Thornbury's history.
Special thanks to Mr D Shipp for his kind assistance
