Ashford Wide is the new community group bringing together Business, Community, and Events in our town, all working together for a better Ashford.
Over the past few years, there have been several local groups working independently, all with different objectives but all with the same goal and that has been to bring something positive to Ashford whether that be in business or through community groups or local events.
The main groups met recently and unanimously decided that working together as one group with one vision would be a great way forward.
Ashford Chamber of Commerce, Ashford Pride, and Ashford Events have merged with the current Ashford Wide group to form this new and expanded group and are very much looking forward to bringing new and exciting projects to Ashford in 2018 and beyond. Individually the groups have achieved a lot over the past few years but are very motivated by what can be achieved by working together.
Some of the ideas include a Community Mural Project an Open Air Cinema evening in the late Summer, plans for a ‘Vision of Ashford’ competition and also a Christmas Event in our town this year.
Ashford Pride has always done a great job with the flags in the town, commemorating
and celebrating special and significant days throughout the year, and this is something that will continue. For the past number of years, it has been Ashford Chamber of Commerce, along with the support of our local businesses that have been responsible for the Christmas lights in our town, this year Ashford Wide will take on the task of lightning up Ashford!
