Developed in 2014 as part of the Portas Pilot, Loveashford is Ashford Borough Council's digital support platform for the local high street.
We support our local businesses and business owners by promoting all of the best news, stories, offers and events you can find in Ashford's town centre.
Ashford is an up-and-coming town full of vibrant new developments, eclectic independent shops and great places to eat and drink - from the high street and Park Mall down to Elwick Place, there's always something to explore.
But it's not just about shopping and eating! Our community is the heart of Ashford and we love a reason to bring everyone together here, so events are a regular thing on our high street.
If you live local, support local and show Ashford some love!
