TRUST members show off a set of specially made commemorative mugs hot off the kiln – just in time for an historical event.

The Back to the Past heritage day on Sunday, October 23, at Alfreton Leisure Centre will see the sports hall packed with exhibitions about the rich industrial heritage in Amber Valley.

And local group, Alfreton and District Heritage Trust has had a set of hand-crafted stoneware mugs made especially to mark the occasion

The mugs feature a sketch of the heritage centre on one side, with the wording ‘Alfreton Heritage Trust’ below the rim and will be on sale at the Back to the Past event for £8.

Secretary of the trust Rachel Walker said the mugs will be “irresistible as a collector’s item or special gift.”
