Winning mosaic chosen

PUPILS from Ilkeston Specialist Arts College have been working with Erewash Borough Council to design a mosaic for Victoria Park, Ilkeston.

The project, led by the council’s Pride in Erewash Campaign, gave Year nine students the chance to come up with a range of ideas – with the winning design chosen by the Friends of Victoria Park Group.

Derbyshire artist Peter Massey, is now working with the students to create the mosaic, which will be installed in the footpath adjacent to the pergola in Victoria Park in the autumn.

Cllr Mike Wallis said: “This is a wonderful and educational project for the students and something they can take great pride in.

“They will be able to see their finished work in place at the park and know that it will be enjoyed for generations.”
