Thursday 27th October was Super Heroes Day at Crich Tramway Village, but we also celebrated local heroes. (pictured above are: Back row: Mayor of the Borough of Amber Valley, Councillor Richard Iliffe; Esme Woolley; Danielle Kirk; Clare Sales; Mike Snow; Tramway Museum Society President Alan Barber and Board Member David Frodsham.
Front row: Mayoress of the Borough of Amber Valley, Councillor Susan Iliffe; five year old Millie Dolman; Evette Keitley; Gemma Ellis; Lyne Thorpe and Chairman Colin Heaton.
We asked the public to nominate local heroes in the Derbyshire region and were delighted to receive nominations from those who work tirelessly for the community, fund-raise for worthy causes, help family members or have experienced life threatening illnesses and come through them with positive attitudes.
We gave the nominees an opportunity to come to Crich and have tea and cakes with The Worshipful the Mayor and Mayoress of the Borough of Amber Valley, Councillors Richard and Susan Iliffe.
The group then took a tram ride to and from Glory Mine and were then free to enjoy the rest of the afternoon and evening of our Starlight Spectacular Event.
Congratulations to all our local heroes.
The Mayor and Mayoress of the Borough of Amber Valley were then taken on a Workshop tour to see how our vintage trams are restored.
The Mayor and Mayoress also visited the charity stalls in the the Exhibition Hall and took in the Century of Trams Exhibition.
