Ashington Town Council are making efforts to reach out and communicate with more local people through a brand new website,

In addition to providing a wide range of news and information, the new site also aims to connect Ashington residents with their dedicated team of councillors and staff.

It features personal profiles and points of contact for each council member, a calendar of upcoming events and meetings, as well as detailed information on all services provided by the council.

Mike Slaughter, Clerk to Ashington Town Council, said: “The Town Council services, functions and remit have significantly increased since the council came into being in 2009.

“The regular contact and interaction with residents, and the range of information provided about life in Ashington is a critical part of the work of the council.”
