Ashton Hayes War Memorial

Back in February we wrote in the newsletter to ask if anyone had any local knowledge about those named on our War Memorial. We had a magnificent response which really helped — particularly with the identification of Thomas Brown — but for now, our research seems to have come to a natural end. There are still gaps in our knowledge and if anyone has any further information, especially photographs, please do get in touch — email:

A special thank you to David Case who did the majority of the research and spent many hours scouring the records. Our current findings are now being transferred to this website for everyone to see. There is a lot of it so it make take a while but it can be accessed on the War Memorial page

Music for a Summer’s Evening
Choir at the Summer Concert – NftP

The annual concert, which took place on 22nd July, was a great success and raised £800 towards the church building fund.

The audience was almost at capacity and after the concert one of our former organists, Bob Jones, wrote, “What a fantastic concert – words fail me – that a village as small as Ashton can put on a concert of such length and to such high standard is simply amazing …”

We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the choir members, soloists, instrumentalists and musicians and to everyone who helped to make this event happen.

World Fame for our Rose Queen

This year’s Rose Queen event was mentioned in the New York Times! The article focuses on the village’s quest for carbon neutrality but have a look at the picture.
