Dr John R Ashton, CBE

“As a local doctor with vivid memories of playing in Strawberry Field as a child, and a conviction that those with learning disabilities are entitled to a full life, I am passionate about The Salvation Army’s vision for this special place. When completed, the magic that inspired John and Paul will continue to inspire a new generation of very special people!”

“The plans to open Strawberry Field to the public for the first time - so people can see a unique exhibition about the home, how and why the song was written by John, and allow visitors to explore the grounds as John did as a child - is very exciting.”
