Shopping guides out

TEN-THOUSAND guides to where to shop in Ilkeston town centre are being distributed around town this week.

Erewash Partnership has printed up an updated version of the handy-sized maps for the first time in nearly three years.

It aims to encourage people to shop locally and sample the town’s 250 shops in the town.

It is also a reference tool for people who are visiting the town from further afield, including postcodes of car parks so that drivers can use satnav to shop here. There are also details of bus routes and stops.
