The Mayor will be joined by members of the local Friends groups at the following flag raising ceremonies:
- West Park, Long Eaton – Thursday 2 November at 2pm
- Straw’s Bridge LNR, West Hallam - Thursday 9 November at 2pm
- Victoria Park, Ilkeston – Thursday 16 November at 2pm.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
We know residents and our Friends volunteers share our pride in these three popular leisure sites and we all look forward to seeing the Green Flags continue to fly high above them – something which tells everyone they are right up there with the best in the country.
