As part of its aim to regenerate Alfreton town, Councillors have agreed in principle to support community organisations and community members with the development of a “Community Hub“ in the town centre.

A community hub is a space for any groups to use that will directly benefit the users and people of Alfreton.

Ideas for the range of activity at the hub are welcomed- already in consideration is;

somewhere to meet, sit and talk, sing, dance, exercise
a learning area from homework, health, support for long term conditions
a food bank
appointment space for community services such as Citizens Advice Bureau & Age UK advice,
wifi access points
youth craft activity

Lead Member for regeneration, Councillor David Taylor said ‘The members of Alfreton Town Council are enthusiastic and committed to regenerating the Town. This is one of many projects highlighted that will involve the community in making Alfreton a better place to live, work and visit’

To be part of the progress of a Community Hub, please forward your Expression of Interest in this development in two ways;

Contact lynn@avcvs.org with an Expression of interest and outline business plan, by 1st October 2021 ,that indicates income & expenditure that would be the foundation of a sustainable community hub. Describe any partners you would work with and the role you see Alfreton Town Council playing.

We have been asked to share the details of the following event, whilst not on our doorstep, some thrill seekers out there may be interested!!

This weekend is our Charity Abseil at the Derby Cathedral - sadly we have received a few cancellations in the run up to the event. This is where I was hoping that you could help and share with family, friends and colleagues on our behalf to help boost our participant numbers.

To take part on the day we ask for a donation of £20.00 and then they will have until 11th October to raise the minimum sponsorship (£100.00). Each participants will receive fundraising support and a charity t-shirt to wear on the day."

The Town Council recently wrote to Grant Shapps MP, Secretary of State for Transport and Local MP's in respect to the recent reduction in rail services in the town.

The Town Council are disappointed with both the generic nature of the reply and to learn that the Ministers department have supported the reduction in service.

The Town Council remain committed to fight hard for the town, even when faced with little interest from other elected officials.
