Here at the ‘Tiser, we are currently running a campaign asking for the ideas you think could help boost Ilkeston town centre and areas such as Bath Street.
Erewash Borough Council has ringfenced £250,000 to splash on the town to help businesses, brighten the environment and help provide a secure future.
It is hoped the money can also be supplemented by extra funding applications.
But for this to be a success, we and the council want your suggestions.
Contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, like us on Facebook at facebook.com/IlkestonAdvertiser or follow us on Twitter @IlkestonTiser.
