Friends of the Ashes

Becoming a Friend of the Ashes is your chance to play a role in the development of Howden’s iconic public space. The Ashes is run by a charity and reliant on volunteers to help raise money as well as helping out around the park.

All members will receive a window sticker and a quarterly email newsletter with the latest news from the park.
