Chivenor welcomes Service families based in Barnstaple and the surrounding area to enjoy a range of facilities, events and activities. 

Your community hub

The Community Centre is located on the married quarters estate at Chivenor next to Bright Start Nursery/Pre School and the Stables.

There is a children’s play park across the road from it. 

Actively engaging with the community centre can provide a really important social outlet and even help you to develop a support network among other Service families. Interested? Come down to Chivenor and join the community – we’re open whenever a scheduled group is running.
