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.
