Trent Buses Failed Promise To Residents

Alfreton Town Council has raised concerns for public safety with the news that local bus operator Trent Barton is to press ahead with the introduction of larger buses on the nines route only months after assuring local residents that it would not run larger busses down Alma and Grange Streets in the town. The promise came at a public meeting organised by the Town Council and attended by over 100 residents after much concern that the roads along the new route were extremely narrow and congested and pass three schools, three nurseries and a Surestart centre.

Town Mayor Cllr Mary Kerry said “not only is it regrettable that busses continue to run down narrow residential streets filled daily with young children, but to find out that Trent Barton are reneging on their promise to local residents a little over eighteen months since the public meeting is totally unacceptable “. The Town Council has called upon Trent Barton to rethink its plans and keep its promise and run their larger busses via the High Street to protect local residents and school children.

Alfreton paused and fell silent in honour of the fallen of the two world wars and the conflicts which have followed.
On Remembrance Sunday, traffic was halted as more than 1,000 people attended the minute's silence and heard the Last Post played at the War Memorial on King Street.
Earlier, the civic party were among people who attended a wreath-laying and brief service at the Methodist War Memorial in Alfreton Cemetery.
With residents lining the streets, the party walked from Rodgers Lane to the memorial in the town centre. The party included the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Derbyshire Jonathan Powers, Alfreton Mayor councillor John Walker, Amber Valley Mayor David Wilson and Amber Valley MP Nigel Mills.
It was headed by a band with representatives from the armed forces, youth organisations, voluntary and business groups, as well as councillors.
After the minute's silence at 11am, hundreds of people joined the party to walk to St Martin's Church on Church Street, where service was held. Names of all the town's fallen were read out, including the sole victim of an air raid on Alfreton during World War II.
Later the civic party returned to the war memorial to take the salute from all the organisations which filed past on High Street.
Alfreton Mayor councillor Walker, who has been involved in the event since 1991, said: "There were well over 1,000 people at the War Memorial on High Street and that is a conservative estimate.
"The attendance was very impressive. It just gets bigger and bigger and bigger.
"People are more aware of the wars and the conflicts that have followed like in Northern Ireland and Afghanistan.
"Young people are also very knowledgeable about it and that is probably down to the schools," he added.
On Saturday November 11, he was with Amber Valley Mayor councillor Wilson as two wreaths were laid on the pitch before Alfreton Town's match with York City at the Impact Arena. One was provided by each club and a minute's silence was observed by all fans.
