THE OFFICIAL opening of the revamped Erewash Valley Trail saw more than 50 people gather at the Attenborough Nature Reserve to mark the occasion.

The event marks the completion of the £520,000 project, which bosses say has delivered significant improvements to local wildlife and people living in the Erewash Valley as well as creating a 30-mile circular walking and cycling route for visitors to enjoy.

The Mayor of Erewash, Cllr Kevin Miller, said: “We had a great launch day, a lot different agencies and a lot of councils have come together to work on the project and they’ve done a brilliant job.

“It’s a very exciting project and I look forward to walking the trails.”
