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.

HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL 27/01/2018

 

 In a quiet ceremony on a busy Saturday morning, Alfreton Town Council remembered the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust.
The Mayor councillor John Walker laid a wreath of red and white flowers at the War Memorial on King Street. A reading was given by assistant Town Clerk.
Councillor Walker said: “It is a momentous occasion and the first time we have marked Holocaust Day. It is also intended to remember and honour those who have died as a result of genocide since then.”
The Royal British Legion also took part in the wreath-laying, which is likely to become an annual event.
Many other local councils are beginning to commemorate Holocaust Day on January 27. The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is based in London and supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government.

Alfreton Town Council supports Watchorn Christian School Community Garden

At the March meeting, the Town Council was pleased to make a grant of £650.00 to Watchorn Christian School which will be used to create a nature and vegetable patch for the school children, nursery children and community groups.

Councillor Hannah Jowett-Frost said “We recognise the importance of spending time outdoors, getting people moving and interacting with nature. This project will help teach children and parents how to grow, harvest and cook healthy meals”.

White post farm comes to Alfreton!

The Town Council was delighted to see such overwhelming support for the White Post Farm Animal Roadshow on 26th March. They bought with them a variety of small animals and reptiles which children were able to get up close to and the sun certainly shone on Alfreton that day!

Our grateful thanks to the animal handlers from White Post Farm who made this such a successful & interactive part of the day.

Thanks also to Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline who were sponsored by Alfreton Town Council to provide free face painting which proved to be amazingly popular. Apologies to those who were unable to get their faces painted, clearly we shall need to have more face painters at the next event!

Over £130 was raised by Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre which is the Mayors chosen charity this year. The charity provides disadvantaged children with a break at the seaside which they may otherwise never receive.
