HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL 27/01/2018

 

 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 crowds watched as Peppa Pig and the Town Mayor, Councillor John Walker, counted down for the spectacular illumination of the lights at Alfreton House and along the High Street to the Christmas Tree.
