Erewash Museum has exciting new plans to redevelop its gardens – and residents are being urged to share their thoughts on what they would like to see included.

Erewash Borough Council has launched an online consultation to give everyone a chance to have their say, with the support of local residents also key in backing an application for external funding for the project.

Ideas so far include creating community planting areas, a town heritage trail and areas for visitors to sit and play while enjoying the serenity of the museum environment.

Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:

“Erewash Museum is a real treasure, much-loved by families across our borough, and we share their pride in all that it offers our communities. It would be lovely to further develop the gardens there and this is a first step to doing just that. We need residents to help us win external funding for the project, so I would urge everyone to show their support by completing a short online survey.”

The consultation closes at 1pm on Friday 15 August.
