During the uncertainty caused by Covid-19 many of us have spent much time (and money) trying to keep sane by “doing” the garden or window box. Personally I have completed many of the small tasks that had been put “on the back burner”.

Lately I’ve been trying to work out what ‘community’ actually means to me. I’ve obviously had my own views, just as others have theirs, but what I think relates best to the Ash, Ash Vale and Ash Green Coronavirus Support Group and is two-fold. Firstly, we have INTEREST, being a group of people who share the same interest and passion. Secondly we have ACTION, where we have a group of people trying to bring about change.Continue reading “Community Spirit”

In November 1959 I was demobbed from the Army after doing my National Service and returned to my old employment at Guildford Rural District Council. Here I met a charming young lady who lived in Ash and worshipped at the Methodist Church and thus I was introduced to the Church Family at Ash Vale Methodist Church (AVMC)Continue reading “Memories of Ash Ranges”
