WORK got underway at Victoria Park Leisure Centre on Tuesday after a sod cutting ceremony.

The swimming pool is undergoing a £2.3m revamp that should be complete by the summer.

Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s lead member for culture and leisure, said: “This ceremony marks the start of the latest development programme to get underway in Erewash which will help transform Victoria Park into a modern, fit for purpose leisure centre. “The local community and staff will all benefit from this investment which will bring some of the best possible facilities and services to Ilkeston.”
