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, 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.
