Budget for 2021/2022

The Town Council met last week to receive a budget presentation by Officers and the Lead Member for Finance including details for the next financial year. It was unanimously agreed to set a precept of £179,767, which was in line with the Town Councils long held policy of maintaining levels in line with inflation. The precept set will be the lowest total of any Town in Amber Valley and is also lower than some Villages in the area. 

 

Councillor Mary Kerry Lead Member of Finance and Personnel noted that ‘the Town Council continues to operate with a smaller budget than all neighbouring Towns and maintain its commitment to not burden local residents with above inflation increases in spite of continued cost pressures. Positively the budget includes provision for new community projects, which we hope to be able to launch after the pandemic eases.’ Further details of the precept and budget can be found on the councils website.

Alfreton Town Council supports Watchorn Christian School Community Garden

At the March meeting, the Town Council was pleased to make a grant of £650.00 to Watchorn Christian School which will be used to create a nature and vegetable patch for the school children, nursery children and community groups.

Councillor Hannah Jowett-Frost said “We recognise the importance of spending time outdoors, getting people moving and interacting with nature. This project will help teach children and parents how to grow, harvest and cook healthy meals”.

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.
