Bradbury Community House was re-built in 1995 on the site of the original Community House. Its central position in the town makes it an ideal venue for all sorts of community groups, with easy access to public car parking.

The re-building of the House was undertaken using funds obtained from Charitable Trusts and monies raised within the town. The House is held in Trust for the elderly of the area and is controlled by a board of Trustees, all of whom give their time on a voluntary basis.

Although the emphasis within the House is towards the needs of the elderly, it is used by a large cross section of the community from Literacy Groups to Yoga classes, a Bridge Club, a very active U3A (University of the Third Age), and many other organisations. Many Charitable organisations take advantage of its central position to hold fund raising events, such as the regular Saturday Coffee Morning.

The House is self-financing and as such receives no monetary aid from either the County or Borough Authorities. Income is derived through letting three sections of the House to commercial tenants, and the remaining rooms are let on either a casual or a regular basis. The house has recently become an increasingly popular meeting place for small and large business groups.

The Trustees built Bradbury Community House to the highest standards possible from the available funds and have always insisted that it be maintained to the same high standards. Those standards also apply to the welcome and service provided by the staff, to all the customers and users, regardless of which section of the community they represent.
