Local - Festive Erewash
w/e 05 December 2021

All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

It's been quite a busy week and when we got to Sunday morning, there were no pictures waiting to be uploaded so that meant a whistle-stop tour around Erewash to see how other places had been preparing for Christmas.

West Hallam

First stop was West Hallam.
Stanley Common

We then moved on to Stanley Common.
Stanley Village

We took the back road and stopped again in Stanley Village.

From there we moved on to Ockbrook and spotted another Christmas Tree in the Royal Oak's car park.

Crossing the A52 into Borrowash we paused again in the shopping precinct car park.

From there we drove to Draycott and although the village's Tree of Hope didn't have any decorations on it, words on the red postbox in front of it said it was for "Letters To Santa".

Parking was at a premium in Breaston even though it was a Sunday. There were no empty spaces on the car park so it was a quick stop blocking in three other vehicles whilst I took this shot of the tree.
Long Eaton

Lots of free parking available in Long Eaton and the town centre around the Market Place was practically deserted - most of the shoppers were in the supermarkets!

On our way back to Ilkeston we stopped near the centre of Sandiacre.

Stanton By Dale

And before returning home a short detour took us to Stanton By Dale. Then it was back home for lunch.
