Astons Social 

ASK is a new activity group for the Astons, open to all, which proposes to provide a varied programme of talks, visits and activities. Everyone is welcome to join us - either by annual subscription or just by coming along to whichever sessions you like the look of.

Members Free.   Visitors £5. 

We aim to have a mix of afternoon and evening meetings to maximise convenience for everyone,

Do please come along to any of our meetings, held at the Astons Village Hall.
