Ashford For You

Front cover and inside spread of ashford for you magazine thumbnailWelcome to Ashford For You – Ashford Borough Council's residents’ magazine.

Our Winter edition is now out. In this edition we focus on the support and advice on offer to help those struggling with the cost of living crisis. We also take a fond look back at the Queen's time in the borough and how Ashford acknowledged her sad passing. 

There is an update on Christmas collections and there are tips and advice on how we can recycle more over the festive period, support local charities and look after our wildlife.

Ashford recently held its Civic Awards where we said thank you to our wonderful community heroes who always put others first. We also include an update on changes at Victoria Park and celebrate our proud Twinning links.

And that’s not all – there are some fabulous prizes on offer in our competitions.

You can download our previous editions online.  

This quarterly magazine is distributed to all households in the borough via Royal Mail and covers what’s going on in the local area, profiling services, people and places. We want to ensure we are communicating with all our residents and keeping them abreast of what is happening across the borough and the services we provide.

While we know many residents use digital methods of communication, such as our website and social media channels, we do not reach everyone this way so we produce a borough-wide magazine to complement the other ways we communicate with our community.
