In the 2014 local election a key local concern was the need to restore the Ashburton Library building. Left to rot by our Tory predecessors this beautiful and historic building was truly the jewel in the crown in Ashburton. So we are thrilled to announce that the building will finally reopen in July this year as the multi-use community centre that residents want.
Cllr for Ashburton Maddie Henson said “This fantastic achievement is thanks to the hard work of council staff, the Friends of Ashburton Park and us your local Labour councillors. The re-development of Ashburton Park Library was a key pledge for us in 2014 and I am thrilled to say we have delivered on that pledge.”
