Talks and events for 2015 can be found here.

Photographs & Research: If you have any personal photographs of Ashford and its villages, it would be great to use them to spruce up the website and maybe have a gallery/CD if there are enough received. Please post them to the web address along with your name, & where & when it was taken.

Also if you have any personal research into Ashford, its villages even a building/street or family they would be a great help to people who contact us. Just send a brief summary of your research and then I can perhaps refer people to you who would like more information.
