We are now pleased to welcome our new cafe 'Plenty at The Square' plus new bar 'The Cobbles' as our new residents at the square. Pop in for a drink or some food. More about the opening hours here.


South Square has always been run by a dedicated team of volunteers supported by a minimal team of part time staff and the good will and enthusiasm of its tenants and users. In order to achieve our greater ambitions we need to step up this support which, in these crucial early stages, means there are plenty of ways in which you can help. Support us and get involved by…

• becoming a tenant
• becoming a volunteer
• becoming a member
• helping to spread the word about our events and activities
• organising a fund/awareness raising event
• supporting the cafe, shop and other businesses in the Centre
• contributing to our crowd funder which will provide much needed resources to buy in expertise and professional services, as well as go towards the maintenance and upkeep of the building
• becoming a steering group member: we need people with expertise in legal and building asset management to assist the administration in a Community Asset Transfer.
• booking the facilities at South Square. Do you have a session you'd like to run at South Square; yoga, craft, book groups etc.

If you are interested in any of the above please either get in touch by email, phone, drop by or leave your details on this Expression of Interest Form. With your support we can make the most of the difficult times we all face and become a valuable community resource for Thornton, Bradford and beyond. We hope you’ll be part of that journey.
