HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL 27/01/2018

 

 In a quiet ceremony on a busy Saturday morning, Alfreton Town Council remembered the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust.
The Mayor councillor John Walker laid a wreath of red and white flowers at the War Memorial on King Street. A reading was given by assistant Town Clerk.
Councillor Walker said: “It is a momentous occasion and the first time we have marked Holocaust Day. It is also intended to remember and honour those who have died as a result of genocide since then.”
The Royal British Legion also took part in the wreath-laying, which is likely to become an annual event.
Many other local councils are beginning to commemorate Holocaust Day on January 27. The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is based in London and supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government.

The association of the Crabtree Allotments have approached the Council to consider replacement of the access gates to their allotment following recent spates of burglaries and due to wear and tear. Along with advice from the Police on Crime Prevention Officer, Members heard that access onto the allotments was easy and targeted with some concern for lone working. Members resolved to replace the gates. These should be installed in the coming month.

Police Visit and Meeting

At the Full Council meeting in January, Inspector David Parker from Derbyshire Constabulary attended to discuss issues in Alfreton and strategic and divisional matters. One issue that repeatedly gets raised amongst residents is dangerous and nuisance parking. Inspector Parker agreed to a further meeting between the Council and the Police Officers stationed at Alfreton to find a way to work together to resolve these issues. Inspector Parker explained that resource is allocated and driven by demand. Whilst there are no expected changes to the Amber Valley or Alfreton numbers, he advised the public to report all crime in the area to allow a true picture for analysis and control and to allow correct allocation of resources and services in the future.
