Ashfield 50th anniversary
Ashfield District Council
Ashfield District Council will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with a special event for its residents. The authority was created on 1 April 1974 and became a new body after four districts were merged in the area.
These were Kirkby in Ashfield, Sutton in Ashfield, Hucknall, and Basford, and the new district council's name was taken from the suffix of the two main towns. Look out for more celebration details for this special half century birthday at What's On.
