Talking about Ashton / Work on new building recommenced
« on: May 04, 2018, 06:39 PM »
Building work has recommenced on the new town centre building. Scottish building company, Robertsons, has taken over the project and the new finishing date is November, that is barring any major issues with previous work. Priority is being given to the college building, so it can open for the post Christmas term, Wilkinsons, so it can be open for Christmas and the job centre which should have moved in this month. Here is a short video I took today of the external work being carried out on the college building.

Over the last two years I've been painting scenes of Ashton and the surrounding district, all my work is now on display at the Central Art Gallery, on Old Street, upstairs from the library. It is called Ashton under Lyne Places and Tameside Landmarks, it is open from 16 September 2016 to 13 January 2017. If you decide to pay a visit please check the opening times.

Talking about Ashton / New building names
« on: September 06, 2017, 11:59 PM »
The new council and college building will be called "Tameside One" with the Council part being named after Daniel Adamson, builder of the Manchester Ship Canal and factory owner in Dukinfield. The college part will be named after Hannah Mitchell, a suffragette and Socialist from Ashton. Work should be completed by the middle of next year with the move back in September.
