Warm Spaces

Warm Spaces are places where people can come together in a warm, safe, welcoming place and maybe enjoy a hot drink, a sit down and have a chat with others.

Voluntary groups, community organisations, and others from communities have come together to establish a network of warm spaces this winter. This includes, but is not limited to, community centres, church halls, libraries and community hubs. They are free to visit and they promise a warm welcome when you arrive.

Play Areas

Ashington Town Council has responsibility for matters relating to the provision of some play areas in the town.

Northumberland County Council remains responsible for the provision and maintenance of play areas in the town’s strategic parks at Hirst Park and Wansbeck Riverside Park.

Those play areas that are managed and maintained by Ashington own Council are in the following locations:

  • Aintree Close
  • Alexandra Road
  • Bywell Road
  • Epsom Drive
  • North Seaton Colliery
  • Paddock Wood
  • Peoples Park
  • Seaton Vale
  • Shire Farm Close
  • Warren Court

These play areas are regularly inspected by Northumberland County Council and maintained by Ashington Town Council.  The Town Council's Neighbourhood Services Officer carries out repairs and maintenance which includes a rolling programme of improvements.

In 2019 the Town Council developed a significant play facility and outside gym at Peoples Park. The Town Council committed funds and secured external funding to develop the £210,000 project. The Town Council has also recently supported Northumberland County Council’s multi-million-pound scheme to restore Hirst Park which includes new play facilities.

To report an issue with any of the play areas listed under the responsibility of Ashington Town Council, please Contact Us.

Please note that any issue with the play areas in the town's strategic parks (at Hirst Park and Wansbeck Riverside Park) should be directed to Northumberland County Council.
