Car Parking

Whilst the car park is free for our customers we are unable to guarantee the availability of on-site car parking due to heavy demand from centre users and permit holders. There are also several public car parks within easy walking distance of the venue.

How to find us

Easy access from exit 11 on M27. During weekdays 9am-6pm, the Ashcroft is unable to guarantee the availability of on-site parking due to heavy demand from Centre users and permit holders.

Routes to and from Fareham Bus Station along the High Street, including Provincial services 34, 35, 38, 57 and 69

Leave the train station and walk along West Street, towards the town centre, until you reach Osborn Road South. Walk up Osborn Road South, turn right and follow the road around, past Ferneham Hall until you reach the Ashcroft
which is on the left, opposite St Peter's and St Paul's Church.

Making a comment, suggestion or complaint

How to make a comment, suggestion or complaint; and what happens next.

Your views help us to improve services and recognise your particular needs, so if you think we could do better, we want to hear from you. We also like to know when you think we did something well, and if anything in particular impressed you.

You can make a comment, suggestion or an informal complaint via email to: ashcroft@hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk or direct to us by phone on 01329 235161.

Problems with a service we provide:

  • Talking with staff will usually resolve things, so the first thing we ask you to do is to raise the matter with the staff concerned. We hope they will be able to put things right straight away, or explain why they can’t. This is often the quickest route to getting an issue resolved.
  • If you are unhappy with their response, then you can ask the department responsible for that service to review your complaint.
  • If you are dissatisfied or have concerns about the standard of service, actions or lack of action by Hampshire Cultural Trust, you can make a formal complaint.

The process and how long it takes:

  • We will acknowledge your complaint within five working days from the date of receipt and tell you how long it will take to give you a full reply. We try to respond quickly to complaints and will reply to you within 20 working days.
  • Sometimes, for example due to the complexity of a complaint, we will not be able to meet this timescale. If this happens we will write to you, and keep you fully informed of the progress being made.
  • Wherever possible we will deal with your comments, suggestions and complaints in confidence. However, in order to investigate complaints thoroughly, it may be necessary to share details of what you say.

Our expectations:

We are committed to dealing with any concerns fairly, fully and in a timely manner. In return we expect people to be polite and considerate to our staff.

Usually dealing with concerns is a straightforward process, but in a small number of cases customers pursue their cases in a way that can get in the way of investigating the complaint or unfairly take staff away from their other duties. In these cases we reserve the right to apply our management of unreasonable contact and customer behaviour procedure.

Have your say

We always welcome comments, suggestions and feedback from our customers. If you would like to get in touch, please email
