Garden party for hospital

ORGANISERS of this year’s garden party in aid of Ilkeston Community Hospital have said it will be bigger and better than ever.

More than 30 stalls and rides are planned alongside displays by the Dance Divas, Long Eaton Militaires and classic cars

Admission to the event is free and part of the hospital grounds will be set out as an arena for entertainment including singer James Powers.

Alongside the fun there will also be a chance to go behind the scenes at the hospital to find out what goes on in the diagnostic and treatment centre from 12noon to 4pm

Stalls at the annual event, on Saturday, will open at 12noon with a parade through the grounds at 1pm.

All proceeds go the Hospital’s fundraising group the League of Friends.
