 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.

The Town council have run a competition in conjunction with their lights switch on, for local businesses to take part in a best dressed window challenge.

Many of the shops in Alfreton chose to take part and it was a very difficult decision for the judge to make.

Wendy Comins of South Normanton Area Food Bank, the Town Mayors chosen charity, has kindly chosen the winner after visiting each shop one afternoon. ‘It was not an easy job because each one was beautifully decorated, many in a style in keeping with the shop itself. I chose ‘Pierce of Art’ on Central Road. The display reminded me of an old fashioned Christmas with stockings hanging on the fireplace, a blazing fire and presents around the tree’

Well done to the staff at Pierce of Art; Lesley, Elizabeth, Jess, Lucy, Tom and Abbey, they will be presented with their prize by the Town Mayor, Councillor Mary Kerry next week.

Members and staff from Alfreton Town Council will be assisting South Normanton Foodbank at their annual three-day food collection in the Tesco store Alfreton. South Normanton Foodbank, who operate from Alfreton House each Wednesday afternoon, is the Mayor’s chosen charity for 2018/19.

Town Mayor, Councillor Mary Kerry, was keen to support a local cause and wanted to not only donate funds but also time which is so undervalued and precious in today’s society.
