New sports area opening

A NEW £70,000 sports facility will be opened in Kirk Hallam today.

Mayor of Erewash Cllr Kevin Miller will cut the ribbon at the multi-use sports area, off Windsor Crescent, joined by pupils from Dallimore Primary School.

The new floodlit games area was funded by the Big Lottery Fund and Erewash Borough Council and adds three football pitches, changing rooms, a children’s play area and a car park to its existing list of facilities.

Dallimore Primary School has been invited to ‘adopt’ the area and take part in Erewash Borough Council’s ‘Adopt-a-Park’ scheme, helping to maintain the park with bulb planting and litter picks.
