Ashford For You

Ashford for you Autumn 2022 cover and inside spreadWelcome to Ashford For You – Ashford Borough Council's residents’ magazine.

Our Autumn edition is now out. In this edition exciting plans for Victoria Park are unveiled, there is plenty of family fun events to keep you entertained in our What’s on section and we reveal the results of our readers’ survey.

We focus on improved facilities at the Julie Rose Stadium and in Tenterden, and show how sport is really making a difference to young people. We also include tips and money saving advice on how to reduce home heat loss, advise on how you can keep loved ones safe all year round and there is also a helping hand for those who feel digitally left behind.

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.
