In early November 2018, two Ashton residents launched "Love Ashton". It's Facebook group for anyone interested in the latest Ashton community news & events, and for chatting about all things Ashton-on-Ribble.

They soon spotted the need for some community action, and so got together with neighbours and launched "Spruce Up Your Street".

This initiative gives Ashton residents the opportunity to seek the help of a volunteer group to help them tidy up a nearby grot spot.

With the advice and support of "Let's Grow Preston" the action group tackled their first project alongside the Space Centre. See them in action below.
