As a beacon of hope Alfreton Town Council would love to see everyone grow a sunflower in their front gardens or in pots if you do not have a garden, supporting AVBC's initiative.
We would like to see the whole of the Borough brought to life with colour, hopefully all four Town Councils will be taking part. Alfreton, Belper, Heanor and Ripley.
