Remembrance Day Service

On Sunday, our Mayor, Cllr Emma Monkman, had the great honour to lay a wreath in the Belper Memorial Gardens to commemorate Remembrance Day 2020. Due to the current restrictions we weren't able to hold the normal service and parade, but were happy to see our Mayor able to make this gesture.

The Council runs a monthly market on the second Saturday of each month on the Market Place however under the current Covid-19 pandemic the stalls are set out on two sites. The additional site will vary between the Memorial Gardens on King Street and the Coppice car park adjacent to the Market Place depending on the season. The Council owns all of the market equipment.

Service Requirements

An opportunity has arisen for a contractor to erect canopies on 26 stalls before 7am on the market day and at 3pm remove all of the stalls and equipment and store away in the Council's depot. From April until September inclusively the Council intends to run a craft market on the Sunday after the regular market. This would mean that the pattern of work will differ for these months. The stall canopies will need to be erected and dismantled on the Saturday with the stalls remaining erect. The canopies will need to be erected by 7am on the Sunday morning and all of the stalls and equipment removed and stored away after 3pm. These are outdoor events that always run despite foul weather, they will only be cancelled if an adverse weather warning is issued by the Met Office in accordance with the Council's Adverse Weather Policy

The Council will pay £300 net per Saturday market from April 2021 to March 2022 inclusively and £300 per Sunday market from April to September inclusively. The Contractor will need a clean driving license which includes towing a trailer. The contractor requires their own public liability insurance cover of £5 million.

Belper's Bouncing Back

We live in a great community with chain and independent shops, fun events and great leisure facilities. There are many organisations and businesses who make living here so fulfilling. Spending the last few weeks under lockdown has touched all our lives and left many of those organisations and businesses struggling to flourish or even survive. Many working families have faced financial hardships with earnings lost, reduced or deferred.

At Belper Town Council we are launching Belper's Bouncing Back, a committed campaign to help Belper and Milford get back on it's feet, recover and then move on to even bigger and better times.

The health of our community is still our number one concern and we urge everyone to follow the recommended guidelines even though we are all feeling frustrated at the restrictions in our daily lives. However as our community begins to open up, we will be here to help Belper and Milford recover it's vibrant soul and beating heart.

Local Government rules mean we cannot directly give financial support to businesses and individuals. What we can do provide grants to non-profit organisations like the Citizens Advice Bureau and the Food Bank, help with national and regional grants, signpost services and promote our community.

We are only a Town Council but we pledge to help our community recover, help protect our organisations, businesses, families, employees and the unemployed and promote Belper and Milford as a place to live, shop and enjoy yourself.

Belper's Bouncing Back

Please contact the Council initially either by post to the above address, email or by telephone 01773 822116 to register your interest in the scheme and to let the Council know what sort of assistance you require e.g financial, help in general with issues etc.
