Street party grants on offer

EREWASH Borough Council are encouraging people to apply for funding available to people in the borough who plan to celebrate the Royal wedding on Friday April 29.

The Advertiser revealed last week how the authority was offering funding to help people organising a party.

The cash can be used towards the hire of tables, chairs, bunting, food, public liability insurance and road closure signs.

To obtain funding an application form must be completed and returned to the council by Friday April 8.

Forms can be downloaded from the council’s website or can be collected from Ilkeston and Long Eaton Town Halls or by contacting Amie Elliott, on 0845 907 2244 extension 3575 or email
