There is no charge for attendance and not only that but you can get a cuppa at the end all free of charge; so pretty good value.
Please note that we are not permitted to use the car park attached to the church; however, there are small pay-and-display car parks in Elm Road (at rear of Leigh Community Centre/Police Station) and off North Street (east of the Wesley Methodist Church) but these do fill quickly.
