Party in the Park 2017

       At the Party in the Park 2017, Alfreton Town Council members held a stall to raise awareness of what services the council offer.

Visitors to the stand were greeted by members and asked for their priorities for the town along with suggested names for the Village Green on Outseat’s.  Once the information has been collated it will be published here and on social media.

A cheque for £2960 was presented to Liam Connell by Councillors M Kerry, G Dolman and S Marshall-Clarke from the grants fund of Alfreton Town Council.  This purchased the hire of the marquee and chairs for the event.

The history of Alfreton is destined for the internet.
Helping the project will be a £750 grant from Alfreton Town Council.
It was handed over by the Mayor, councillor John Walker, to Alfreton and District Heritage Trust. The cash will be spent on MODES, which provides a compact database, software and training.
This will allow the volunteers to catalogue all their historical items and put them on websites, where interested people will be able to find them with the wriggle of a computer mouse.
Councillor Walker feels there is plenty of civic pride and that it is vital for future generations to preserve the fast-changing character of the town.
"Alfreton is completely different from when I came to work here. Buildings have disappeared, rows of traditional houses have disappeared.
"There used to be an annual carnival in the thirties and that was a highlight for people at the time.
"There used to be four collieries within one mile of Alfreton town centre and there used to be a lot of knitwear made. Things change and people are interested in history," he added.
The trust has a heritage centre in the former chapel in Alfreton Cemetery off Rodgers Lane.
