The Village Green will be officially opened and named the 'Centenary Green' at a small ceremony to be held on Friday 16th March 2018 at 11am at the entrance adjacent to Henry Crescent. Those involved in the creation of this space have been invited to attend along with the developers Wheeldon's to celebrate the benefits that this piece of land will bring to the residents of Alfreton. A community based opening will also take place in the summer.
The name 'Centenary Green' was chosen following the suggestion that the street names on the new housing development would be selected from the War Memorial to commemorate 100 years since WWI, the name links to that suggestion.
