LOOKING FOR FRIENDSHIP?

In July 2019 the "#Hello Neighbour Challenge" inspired a group of Ashtonians to encourage residents to get to know others in the local community and to share news about community and social events.

Members of the HELLO NEIGHBOUR group communicate with each other online using a Facebook Group and the website "Nextdoor" and meet at the Beach Hut Cafe on Preston Docks, 10:30 - 12 noon on the first Saturday and third Wednesday of each month. If you would like to join the group for a coffee and a chat, please respond to their event posts on their Hello Neighbour Facebook Group or on the event listing on Nextdoor.

Members of the group organise social events based upon members' interests and support a variety of community events.

Don't be shy - join up, join in and make new friends.

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCHFULNESS

Via What's App

Following a suggestion from the police, residents of a number of streets in old Ashton created What's App WATCH groups (coloured green)

They now share information about anti-social behaviour and crime in their area.

If you would like to start a group for your street check out this guide based on the experiences of the Ashton admins.

If you would like to link your group to the current network, please e-mail details to ashtononribbleanchor@gmail.com
