Amberfest on the way to Alfreton?

Alfreton is looking set to host this year’s Amberfest – an event aimed at promoting Council and partner services and attracting people to town centres around the Borough.

Last year the event was held in Ripley, but a report being considered by Amber Valley Borough Council’s Full Council meeting on 27 January, recommends that this year Alfreton Market Hall is the venue, on Friday 20 May.

This date has been chosen because it is within the two weeks schedule for the national ‘Love Your Market’ campaign, where events are held up and down the country to promote local markets.

The 2015 event attracted around 250 people to the town centre and the stalls at the event welcomed the opportunity to speak directly to customers and members of the public to respond to queries and tell them more about their services.

The event will be run in a similar style to Amberfest 2015 with a number of stalls made available to Council departments and partners to promote their services and provide members of the public with a chance to speak to Cabinet Members and senior officers.

Commented Regeneration Portfolio Holder, Cllr Kevin Buttery: “Basing Amberfest in Alfreton would offer a great opportunity to promote the many attractions of the town centre, while at the same time allowing local to people to find out more about some of the many services we, and our partners, offer. We are also looking at the possibility of offering space at Amberfest to local ‘new-start’ businesses to promote themselves.”
