GROUNDWORK has announced plans to bring an Ilkeston park back to its former glory – and needs your help.

The organisation, in partnership with Erewash Borough Council, is planning to submit a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for work on Victoria Park.

Office manager Kate Miller said: “As part of this bid, we need old photos of Victoria Park, showing how it used to be.”

Email your photographs of the park’s golden days to chris.riley@groundwork.org.uk, or post them to Groundwork Derby & Derbyshire, The Bridge Centre, 43 Cromford Rd, Langley Mill, Derbys, NG16 4EF.

Include your name and address, and they will be sent back to you.

Here is a view of the park from the postcard collection of Frank Underwood. n See more in our Streets of Change on pages 16 and 17.
