Party in the Park 2017

       At the Party in the Park 2017, Alfreton Town Council members held a stall to raise awareness of what services the council offer.

Visitors to the stand were greeted by members and asked for their priorities for the town along with suggested names for the Village Green on Outseat’s.  Once the information has been collated it will be published here and on social media.

A cheque for £2960 was presented to Liam Connell by Councillors M Kerry, G Dolman and S Marshall-Clarke from the grants fund of Alfreton Town Council.  This purchased the hire of the marquee and chairs for the event.

👚👕🩳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...🩳👕👚
