The Force is with us.

The sun shone and thousands turned out to the classic car show in Ilkeston. The Friends of Bennerley Viaduct had a stall which was busy all day. There was overwhelming support for the project.

The force was clearly with us as notable visitors to our stall was Darth Vader accompanied by  Star Wars stormtroopers. We were even visited by petrolhead Stig who promised to  invest in a pushbike when Bennerley Viaduct reopens.

We heard many fascinating stories about the viaduct. It was empowering to experience the depth of support that this project is receiving from  the local community. Thanks to Jeff for organising the day and to Rich, Colin and Trevor for their sterling work promoting the viaduct.
