Ashford For You

Ashford For You Winter 2023 Cover and inside spreadWelcome to Ashford For You – Ashford Borough Council's residents’ magazine.

Our Autumn-Winter edition is now out. In this edition we feature local rural community pubs, the launch of our Citizen’s Panel and an update on our proposed move.

We also focus on the expansion of Ashford College, look back and ahead to events in our town centres, and include all the Christmas recycling and refuse collection information, tips and advice.

Victoria Park has been enjoying a new lease of life this summer, following a major renovation, and there are also exciting plans for the former Kent Wool Growers site off Tannery Lane. We also focus on caring for the community, keeping fit at Tenterden Leisure Centre, introduce our new Mayor and Cabinet, and provide some advice for residents on how to stay safe from scammers at this time of year.

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

You can download our previous editions online.  

This 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.
