WELCOME

Welcome

to the annual Ashington Village Directory. One of a series of Village Directories in Sussex. This directory is delivered free of charge to every home and business in Ashington, Washington and the surrounding area. It contains details of the local clubs, societies, churches etc. In fact all the information that is useful to residents. Village Directories keep residents informed, shopping locally and using local services. Our aim is to support the community and the directory devotes 50% of its content free of charge to useful local information. This publication is made entirely possible by local trades and services who advertise. Please make every effort to support them and to mention that you saw the advert in The Ashington Village Directory. We now have a new website which has all the listings and advertisers contained in this edition. The website also has similar listings of 15 other West Sussex villages so if you need any local contact details for community groups in West Sussex this website is a good place to start. It is designed to also work on your smart phone or tablet so please have a look and make it one of your ‘favourites’ so you can easily access the contact details you need whether at home or on the move. We hope you find the Directory useful and that you keep it to hand for the whole year until the next one arrives. The Village Directory Team
