Nominate bench sites

RESIDENTS are being given the chance to nominate their Erewash top spots for a Jubilee bench.

Erewash Borough Council plan to install 60 benches to mark the year of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and want to know where people want them.

Cllr Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s lead member for culture and leisure, said: “We want to ensure our Jubilee benches are sited right across the borough in the best possible places and so are keen to encourage local people to nominate possible locations.

“We will consider all nominations, as long as they are on public land and draw up a final list as we look to install the benches over the coming year.”

To suggest a site fill out a nomination form online at or visit Town Hall.
