Working hard in amazing Ashbourne

A shout-out for our brilliant southern area Clean & Green Team, who have been working particularly hard to make Ashbourne look even more amazing in recent times.

They've been working closely with local communities to improve areas in and around the town that we maintain.

So lots is happening in the background as the massive £830,000 Pavilion in the Park project takes shape.

In the Recreation Ground itself our teams have painted swings, reinstated the rocking pig play equipment, replaced splash pads and jet washed the surfacing, replaced the climbing frame netting and repainted the lines on the tennis court.

We've also worked closely with the Royal British Legion to tidy up the Memorial Gates and surrounding area, where a new flowerbed has been created, and worked closely with Ashbourne U3A's flower bed project and Ashbourne Rotary Club, who have planted 8,000 crocus bulbs.

Looking ahead we now have capital funding to restore the bandstand and shelter and we are determined to continue to develop and improve the park ahead of an application for Green Flag status in 2022.

St Oswald's Churchyard has had its regular winter maintainence, with a wildflower area protected, and at the Cemetery we've replaced the lych gates, replaced metal bins and cleared a lot of overgrown areas. The cemetery's memorial garden has been cleared back and the rose garden restored to its former glory.

Well done to all involved.
