Unfortunately Covid-19 has put a stop to our usual plans for this year!
Walks in Amber Valley and Erewash in Derbyshire

However we want you this September to discover with your family/friends the great range of local walks in Amber Valley and Erewash which have been produced over the last 20 years.

Walking is very good for both mental and physical health – so why not see what is on your doorstep.

Please keep to the government guidelines, ensuring social distancing and currently no more than 6 people meeting from different households. Please see full list of walks below.

Alfreton Town Council grant award

At the May meeting, the Town Council was pleased to make a grant of £750.00 to James Simpson who is participating in The DECA – an ironman triathlon, every day for 10 days, totalling 24 miles of swimming, 1,120 miles of cycling and 262 miles of running in aid of raising money to support & promote outdoor activities for young people in Alfreton.

Councillor David Taylor said “We wish James the very best of luck in this gruelling test of endurance! We know how keen he is to engage young people in outdoor activities in our town, we look forward to working with him & SISU as part of the Activ8 Alfreton Project which encourages people of all ages, abilities & fitness levels to undertake some form of regular physical activity”.

More information on James fundraising and the launch of Activ8 can be found here:

After a wonderful few days celebrating The Queens Jubilee, it is with great sadness that we are having to postpone our two events today.
We have assessed the park this morning, but due to adverse weather conditions it would be unsafe for us to go ahead with todays events.
The Teddy Bears Picnic will hopefully go ahead as planned (weather permitting) on Fathers Day June 19th. We will announce a further date for Death of the High Streets gig.
