Ashford for You Magazine spring 2019 coverAshford Borough Council has introduced a borough-wide residents’ magazine, called Ashford For You.

The latest edition (Summer 2019) is being delivered directly to residents’ doors via Royal Mail W/c 27 May. You can view the previous edition (Spring 2019) online.  

The 24 page, quarterly magazine is distributed to all households in the borough and covers what’s going on in the local area, profiling services, people and places. We want to ensure we are communicating with all our residents and keeping them abreast of what is happening across the borough and the services we provide.

While we know many residents use digital methods of communication, such as our website and social media channels, we do not reach every household this way so the council are introducing a borough-wide magazine to complement the other ways we reach our community.

In the last edition of the magazine we asked readers for their views on the publication. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with residents feeling more informed with what is going on in the borough and kept up to date with what the council is doing. We also received some great ideas from readers for future features which we will be looking to include in forthcoming editions.

  • Over 90% strongly agreed or agree to some extent the magazine keeps residents up to date
  • 88% think Ashford For You keeps residents very or quite well informed
  • 88% also feel better informed since the introduction of the magazine
