Mr Alan Steele Rigley
We are very grateful for the generous legacy of £5k from the estate of Mr Alan Steele Rigley. Donations of this type enable us to continue to provide accessible and affordable transport for those unable to use regular public transport or people living in rural areas where no public transport services exist.
Regenerating Ashbourne Town Centre
ACT is supporting the new Ashbourne Stakeholders Group which aims to produce a plan to regenerate the Town Centre. We already bring shoppers into the Town Centre on a regular basis and hope to work with the new group to increase these numbers especially by increasing our services to visitors.
