Community Day at Belper  12th November 2012

   During the summer, volunteers from Transition Belper have been working with offenders from Derbyshire Probation Trust’s Community Payback Scheme clearing overgrown vegetation. This project has been an integral part of Belper in Bloom’s success at Britain In Bloom 2012 at which Belper received a Gold accolade and were awarded the ‘Best Large Town’ in the British Isles

A Community Rail Day was held at Belper station on 14th November. It brought together station adoption volunteers from Transition Belper, members of other local community groups including FDVL members, and staff from East Midlands Trains and Network Rail. The main focus of the day was the planting of shrubs and small trees in the four sections immediately behind the platforms together with more vegatation clearance.
