Town Council Continues fight for step free access at Alfreton station.
At its meeting last week the Town Council heard an update from Network Rail on the long promised works to deliver step free access to the station, and from the Derbyshire Law Society who continue to pursue a discrimination claim against both Network Rail and East Midlands Railways. The meeting heard how Network Rail are now looking to complete the work by the end of next year, subject to no complications.
Council Leader Councillor Scott Walker told the meeting that whilst the news from Network Rail was welcome, it should not be forgotten that this was the latest date provided in a long list of previously broken promises, and the delivery of the project was still reliant on government funding, which they had previously withdrawn when we reached a similar position. The meeting agreed to write again to local MP's and continue to support the Derbyshire Law Society.

DUWC has just published a guide to benefits and credits following redundancy outlining all you need to know when faced with unemployment. The guide is free and can be found at the checkouts in Shirebrook Co-op.

Although closed at the present time for face-to-face enquiries, DUWC advisers will find a way to help you through your problems. DUWC works closely with the Derbyshire Law Centre and having decades of experience can signpost you to complimentary organisations if we cannot help you ourselves.

“It's a shot to nothing to check out that you are getting the right amount of benefit." said Andy. "Check out our new mobile phone friendly website www.duwc.org.uk . All the staff at DUWC have at sometime experienced unemployment so they know what you are going through and are keen for you to benefit from their expertise and experience.”
