Additional Information

DONATION FOR FOOD CHARITY HELPING ALFRETON

Alfreton Town Council have supported the Fareshare Midlands Charity with a donation of £1000.00 to support them during the Coronavirus crisis. 

Fareshare Midlands support in excess of 1000 families in Alfreton, Which represents just under 3% of their support in East Midlands.  Although that figure may be much higher given the unprecedented times that we find ourselves in. 

FareShare Midlands provides a very low-cost food solution to frontline charities and community groups helping them make essential savings on their food budgets, by redistributing good quality in date surplus food from the food industry. Good food becomes surplus for a number of reasons including overproduction or a short shelf life. We work with retailers, suppliers and manufacturers to access surplus food including fresh fruit and vegetables, meats, dairy products, tinned and dried goods.

Their food reaches vulnerable men, women and children of all ages and backgrounds who have fallen on difficult times and includes: homeless people, children living below the poverty line, refugees and low income families. The types of groups they support include hostels, schools, food banks, and community centres.

 

Their work is about more than just meals – without their service one in five of the charities and community groups supported,  would potentially have to close. Receiving FareShare Midlands food provides average savings of £7,900 which helps charities to continue providing vital support to thousands of vulnerable people.

Community groups, schools and charities can become a member of FareShare Midlands by completing an application form and by having a kitchen inspection by one of their staff. We then work with them to supply the types of food they need. Individual members of the public can access our food via these frontline organisations. They can be contacted by email enquiries@fareshare-eastmidlands.org.uk 

Volunteers Needed

South Normanton Area Foodbank is seeking volunteers in anticipation of increased demand and activity in the coming weeks for their service in Alfreton, which is currently ran every Wednesday from Alfreton House 1.30pm – 3pm. They also provide a service in South Normanton from St Michael and All Angels Church.
If you think you may be able to offer some support please contact us so that we can collate information to pass onto the Foodbank. This would not be suitable for anybody in the COVID-19 at risk categories.
We would need your name and contact details. You can email townclerk@alfretontc.co.uk.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) CLOSURE OF OFFICE

Alfreton Town Council have taken the decision to close their office and for their business to be conducted through staff working from home.

This decision has been made in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and the risk to vulnerable staff and members.

Inevitably, Town Council business will be affected, however the staff will work hard to maintain continuity and where possible support will be provided to the community through partnership working with local professionals.

Please be aware that the Town Council have the equivalent of 1.5 staff members who normally work Tuesday to Thursday between the hours of 9-3pm. Please consider this when contacting staff and bear in mind that the Town Council may not be the most appropriate service to contact.

‘Will there still be direct services from Alfreton and Langley Mill to London St Pancras International during the week and at weekends?’

We have no plans to continue running direct services to London from those stations. We will, however, maintain a morning Sheffield to Nottingham service, which will call at these stations and allow connections from Nottingham to London St Pancras International
