Commemorating WWI – 100 Years


At the meeting in March, Members resolved to purchase a WWI memorial bench for Alfreton House.  This will be positioned on the lawn at the House to commemorate 100 years since the end of WWI.  On the 11th November 2018 at 7pm there will also be a lighting of the Beacon Ceremony to coincide with 1,000 other beacons throughout the UK.  More details will follow closer to the event.
There are further plans to install 2 further benches, one at the Centenary Green and one at the War Memorial.

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.
Please all get involved and share your creations with us, let’s see who can nurture the biggest Sunflower!
