Welcome to LA
A new resident?
Welcome to Long Ashton!
There’s plenty going on in Long Ashton and
in order to ‘welcome’ new residents, we have set up the ‘Welcome LA’
scheme. Most, but not all, streets have
a ‘Welcomer’ who will deliver a ‘welcome pack’ to you so that you are aware of
services and activities in the village.
If you moved in more than month and have not received a welcome pack, do
contact our Welcome LA co-ordinator, Liz Lansley. Her e mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org Tel 01275
The village has 3 regular publications:
– delivered to every household every 4 months, produced by the parish council -
The Parish Magazine – produced by our local parish church
office on a monthly basis - This
provides information on ‘what’s on’ as well as providing a local advertiser for
local trades people. To obtain a copy
regularly by small subscription call the parish office Tel 393109
LA Paper – also
free, delivered every month across the village with news of events.
are fortunate to have a library on Lovelinch Gardens where you can get help and
advice so do call in and get the full picture of the village you have moved to
– for opening times tel 01934 426 030.
There is plenty going on in the village for example: a monthly market
(first Saturday of the month), a weekday morning café at the community centre,
bowling, tennis and thriving junior and senior football clubs.
do hope that you will find something of interest in the village and that you
will enjoy living here.

Some guidance for Welcomers:
Please notice when new people move into your patch
- Then pick up a current Welcome LA pack from John Edwards to give to
- Greet your new neighbours, preferably face to face rather than
simply delivering the pack through their letter box; ideally a few days
after their arrival
- If for any reason, you can’t continue welcoming, let us know so
that we can find a replacement for your patch
- If you have any queries or would like to become a welcomer
contact email@example.com or John Edwards Tel 393797.
Welcomers, always welcome!
