Your new website!

A very warm welcome to Ashton’s new village website.

The site has been created using a grant from the National Association of Local Councils (NALC). The grant, called a Transparency Grant, is to encourage all local councils to be fully transparent and open with their administrative and financial documents. As long as we comply with this, we are able to use the site as a village ‘hub’ of general information. We really hope you will use the new site as our main aim is to achieve a greater ‘footfall’ or users of the site so that communications improve in the village. We are aware that many people do not use facebook, which is where much ‘live’ information currently goes. The new site will have a news and updates section to keep up with facebook. If you do have a facebook account, you can read the PC posts from this site.

If you have a public village event to publicise, you can use the events calendar to do so. Please let us know if you have any problems doing this.

Please bear with us whilst we work on new content and old favourites. If you would like to send us suggestions or feedback, please use the form on the Contacts page or email Karen at Please don’t worry if you can’t see old content, everything from the old site has been saved and will either appear in due course or can be obtained from us.

We hope you enjoy using the site!
