Train station – thanks to campaigners

Wonderful news received regarding funding being granted from the Conservative government for the Ilkeston railway station.

Thanks must go to all concerned, including our MP, Jessica Lee, for her tireless work, Erewash Partnership, the Ilkeston Advertiser for its campaign and the formerly Conservative-led Derbyshire County Council under the leadership of Cllr Andrew Lewer and Cllr Simon Spencer.

As a resident and councillor for Ilkeston, it is great to see this scale of regeneration that will bring life back to the town.

Cllr Mary Hopkinson,

Little Hallam Ward.
