Crackdown on underage drinking in Alfreton

ALFRETON Town Safer Neighbourhood Team has promised to crack down on underage drinking and anti-social behaviour in local parks and at the Hall Street car park.

The pledge came after complaints were made at a meeting with the public. A spokesman said: “We are very keen to encourage new people to come along to the meetings and welcome anyone who would like to discuss local problems. “The next meeting is on August 31, between 6pm and 7pm, at Alfreton police station.”
