What is the best thing about the town? The Designer Outlet is very good, I really like it there. What would you say to a visitor to encourage them to come to Ashford? They should definitely come here, Ashford is a good place with lots of good parts. What are your favourite shops, bars and restaurants in Ashford? I really like Debenhams, and also the other shops are very good. What is the best tourist attraction in the town? Definitely the Outlet Centre, there is a good range of shops. Where is your one favourite place in Ashford? Again, the Outlet Centre. What makes Ashford stand out from other towns? I think Ashford is still a developing town. Compared to places like Canterbury, Ashford is just starting out. I also think that there are too many people in other towns, in Ashford it is just right. What has changed about Ashford over the years? The fact that it is developing and there are many new shops in the town. What needs improving in the town? There needs to be more shops in the town centre. County Square is fast becoming empty and many businesses are moving to retail parks out of town. I think more should be done to encourage businesses to stay in the town centre. Can you see yourself living in Ashford for the rest of your life? Yes, of course. Do you feel proud to live in Ashford? Yeah, the people here are really nice and friendly.
