Welcome to April's issue of Ashford Voice!
Even if spring hasn’t quite sprung, here’s hoping that this month’s edition can bring a few rays of sunshine to your day with the latest news, features and information from the beautiful borough.
In this month’s issue, we’ve got the lowdown on how Jazzy Jeff, the legendary hip-hop artist known for his appearances along Will Smith in the Fresh Prince of Belair, is headlining this year’s Create Music Festival on Saturday 21st July. There’s also an eclectic, fresh mix of great local talent performing across the festival’s four stages, so make sure it’s a date you save in your diary!
As you may have already noticed, work has officially started for the £90 million expansion of the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet, which you can find out more about in this issue, as well as all the details about an exciting international WW1 photography exhibition that's making its way to the town this summer.
Do you know someone who deserves to be praised for their exceptional community service or great work within the borough? Well, we have details about how you can nominate a special individual for an Ashford Civic Award; a prestigious award ceremony will take place in July to honour those who have contributed outstanding community service within the borough.
There’s also news about two new play areas being created in Ashford, our eggs-ellent town centre Easter event, and the refurbishments to St Mary’s Churchyard undertaken by the council.
Make sure you check out the What’s On page for a list of upcoming local events too.
In other news, April’s issue of Ashford Voice will be the last in its current branding and format. Exciting news is to follow in the coming weeks, but be assured you will be kept up to date with all the latest borough news!
