ASHINGTON SAYS NO TO LITTER BUGS

The town of Ashington is calling on all residents to show their love for their community by reducing waste, reusing items, and recycling properly.

Recent figures show fly-tipping is on the rise, with a whopping 115 tonnes of illegally dumped rubbish spread over nearly 2,000 incidents in the last financial year ☹️ Not to mention an astounding 326 tonnes of general litter in public bins and found littering our streets, despite the tireless efforts of volunteers and the NCC Local Services Team who litter pick. It’s hard to imagine that amount of rubbish - we hope our infographic below helps.

Ashington Honours World War II Fallen with Memorial Arboretum

A project is being developed in Ashington in preparation of the 80th Anniversary of the ending of World War II in 2025.

Ashington Cricket Club being supported by Ashington Town Council, is working with the Royal British Legion and Reiverdale Scout Group on the project.  The plan is to place a personalised commemorative plaque alongside 175 trees commemorating the individual service members from Ashington, who made the ultimate sacrifice in the war.

The trees in the Cricket Club ground and surrounding area were planted after World War II in memory of each person from the town who lost their life in the war.  The project will enhance the existing memorial trees as well as planting new trees to replace trees damaged and lost over the years.
