Remember that Friends of Astley Hall are entitled to a 10% discount for up to four people at Cafe Ambio on production of your membership card.

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.
