Town Council calls for senior management changes at East Midlands Railway

At its recent meeting Alfreton Town Council considered an update on further changes to East Midlands Railway services (EMR). The meeting heard that in little under 12 months EMR had substantially reduced services to the Town, including the removal of the Towns direct London services after almost 50 years, and more recently a 35% reduction in regional services to the Town with 48 hours’ notice with mass cancelation due to operational difficulties. The meeting was also told has EMR has now twice reneged on promises to reinstate those services from the 12th of December and the 3rd of January respectively, only advising stakeholders retrospectively and was still taking bookings for travel on these withdrawn services.
Council Deputy Leader Mary Kerry told the meeting that it is apparent that East Midlands Railway have been less than transparent in their correspondence, most notably with fare paying customers, and would seemingly have an unhealthy culture in that respect highlighted by recent suggestions of a ‘slightly reduced timetable’ which has subsequently transpired to be almost 1 in 5 of their trains scheduled to call at Alfreton.
The Town Council has previously passed a vote of no Confidence the management of East Midlands Railways, and it was unanimously resolved at their recent meeting that should be extended to call for the top level of management at EMR to consider their position to allow both the culture and service to be addressed by a new team.

👚👕🩳Alfreton, Derbyshire - Alfreton is blooming with excitement as Mayor David Taylor officially opens the Bloomers Display in the town centre. The display, which features a variety of clothing featuring business sponsors, celebrates the town's textile heritage and community spirit.

The grand opening of the Bloomers Display was made even more special as Town Mayor David Taylor announced a generous donation of £700 to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation in memory of Stan Marczynski, a beloved member of the Alfreton community who sadly lost his battle with lung cancer last year. Stan worked alongside his son, Rob, as the Town Council contractor.

The Bloomers Display, organised by Alfreton Town Council and installed by Decx, an Alfreton firm, is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the town's community. The display features an array of clothing to promote and showcase the heritage of the town and the current business community. David Nieper provided the oversized bloomers which feature on each line. Businesses were invited to sponsor a line to advertise their business.

Representatives from David Nieper Foundation, RSM Home and Gardens, Prestige Driveways, Enchanted Rose and the Market traders joined the Town Mayor and Deputy Town Mayor on Saturday. The Town Council were hosting the monthly market and provided entertainment in the fashion of 'washerwomen' to further promote the installation.

Town Mayor David Taylor expressed his gratitude to the community for their support in making the Bloomers Display a success. He said, "I am delighted to see the town come together to create such a beautiful display. It is a true reflection of the community spirit that makes Alfreton such a special place to live."

The donation to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation will provide support for the charity that works tirelessly to support those affected by lung cancer and to fund vital research into the disease. The Mayor added, "It is an honour to make this donation in memory of Stan, I hope that this contribution will help the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation in their important work and bring comfort to those who have been affected by this disease."

The Bloomers Display will be on display until early autumn. It will be replaced by the annual Christmas lights display.

The Town Council and Decx have begun planning for the 2025 display and are working with David Nieper Academy to create a vision...🧐watch this space...🩳👕👚
