We Need Your Support

Ashton Gardens was bought for the people by a huge donation from Lord Ashton in 1914.

Since that time the local Council has managed and maintained them.

But recent times have seen strong pressures on Council budgets. Renovation and renewal is increasingly difficult to fund, and  plans for residential or commercial development continue to threaten the Gardens.
