Pigeon nuisance in Town

The Town Council has been forced to withdraw from a project to try and deal with the pigeon nuisance on Institute Lane after receiving notification from Amber Valley Borough Council that the authority were no longer partnering on the project in spite of being responsible for Environmental Health. As part of the initial stages of the project the Town Council pressed for signs to be installed on the lamp posts to asked the public not to feed the birds, but the next steps on the project have now been abandoned.

The Town Council are again reminding the public not to feed the birds as it encourages pigeons and other rodents. Pigeons are wild animals should not depend on humans to be a source of their food. Food waste makes the area dirty, attracts flies and rats together with bird droppings from the overfed animals which creates health issues also causing detrimental effects on buildings and the appearance of the town. Posters will also be distributed to shops in the area to display and remind the public not to feed the birds. Concerned residents are asked to contact Amber Valley Borough Councils Environmental Health team on 01773 570222.

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.
