Sponsored walkers wanted for fund

A SPONSORED walk is due to be held to raise funds for Alfreton Party in the Park.

Organisers of the yearly September festival are holding the walk from Alfreton to Ashover on Sunday April 15 and everyone is welcome to take part.

The eight-mile trek is set to begin at 11am.

A free buffet will be available on arrival at Ashover. Organisers say free transport will be laid on to bring the weary walkers home.

Anyone taking part can donate 50 per cent of their sponsorship to a cause of their choice.

Sponsorship forms will be available at the next Party in the Park meeting, to be held on Wednesday, January 25, at the Devonshire Arms, on King Street, Alfreton, at 7pm.
