Construction students at Derby College’s Ilkeston campus will help convert the former Woolworths into a retail and community facility.

Arena Community, part of Arena Church, has recently taken on the lease of the building on Bath Street and is planning to refurbish it with the help of Derby College students.

The new shop will include upcycled furniture sales and repairs, a coffee shop and a vintage clothing and goods store.

The involvement of Derby College is part of a programme to integrate work experience into all students’ courses – boosting their CVs and better preparing them for the world of work.
