What are Time Credits?

For every hour you volunteer at the Hall in whatever capacity you earn a time credit which can be spent at a variety of places like the Leisure Centre, Chorley Little Theatre, Lancashire College for a number of different courses as well as a number of different participating local groups. That is the extra value of being an active member. The more active members we have the more events we can put on in the Hall, which will benefit us all as well as bringing the Hall to life.

Housekeeping and cleaning
The hall will be closed in February and March for cleaning and repairs. The Friends have offered their support over this period.
