Sensational Sustainable Planting

Plans for sustainable planting started back in March 2022. We are delighted that 6-months later we can enjoy the fruits of some very hard labour.

Planting on Station Road is lush, green and eye catching. It will change throughout the seasons. We hope that everyone will recognise and enjoy the changes, especially the young people who designed the signage, and helped convey the message of sustainable planting back in July.

As people drive into Ashington, our gateway features have impact, and we are very proud of the finished results.

Remembrance 2022

Ashington Town Council is supporting the Ashington Branch of the Royal British Legion in organising the Parade and Service. Plans for Remembrance 2022 have begun, and we are delighted that a parade through town will make a welcome return. It is our joined hope that Sunday 13th November 2022 will resonate with Remembrance Days of the past. We are seeking a strong contingent of uniformed services, and most importantly need a marching band. If you have any instrumental contacts, please ask them to get in touch. The wonderful Ashington Colliery Band will play at the service, but we would like a band to advance the march.

There are always impressive numbers paying their respects in Ashington on Remembrance Sunday, demonstrating the community spirit and support of the Royal British Legion; it would be wonderful to continue to uphold this in 2022.

Proclamation to the people of the County of Northumberland

On Saturday 10th September, at 10:00am, The Accession Council commenced the official and very historical undertaking of declaring our new King, His Majesty King Charles III, following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, only days before.

Ashington Town Council did raise the Union Flag to full mast at 11:00am on Saturday to mark the National Proclamation, where it remained until after the Local Proclamation by the High Sheriff of Northumberland at 1:00pm on Sunday. The flag will remain at half-mast until the day after the funeral of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

The High Sheriff of Northumberland read out the official proclamation of the new sovereign, HM King Charles III, moments ago (Sunday 11th September at 1:00pm). The Proclamation was made by James Royds, accompanied by the Lord Lieutenant of Northumberland.

“”Although we continue to mourn the sad death of HM Queen Elizabeth II, it is important that we welcome the accession of King Charles III to the throne. On behalf of the people of Ashington, we are proud to confirm HM King Charles III as our new monarch and we embrace this exceptionally significant time in our nation’s history. The people of Ashington join those of Northumberland and beyond in celebrating the accession of our new King and send him Ashington’s best wishes for a long and successful reign.”

Councillor Mark Purvis Chair of Ashington Town Council
