Ashford For You

Ashford For You magazine Autumn 2021 cover and inside spread

Welcome to Ashford For You - Ashford Borough Council's residents’ magazine.

Our autumn edition is now out and includes the very latest news and information about what is happening in our borough.

Inside the latest edition, find out more about the expanding Singleton Environment Centre, EXPERIENCE days out in Kent and discover how the Jasmin Vardimon dance academy is coming to life. You can have your say on our carbon plans and find out how we are introducing more electric charging points and how you can plant a tree for the Jubilee.

We also focus on two poignant displays in our Memorial Gardens, showcase some of the entries in not one, but two photo competitions, and Tenterden Folk Festival is back, along with several other events in our bumper What’s On feature.

There are also updates on walking and cycling, Victoria Park and plenty of exciting prizes to win in our competitions. You can view a digital copy on our website or a printed version should be delivered in the coming days.

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.
