Ilson Gnome, of Gnome Island fame (Morrisons roundabout), is back after his visit to Glastonbury. Hobnobbing with Elton John and all the other stars, he had a great time. Waving his giant flag, he once again put our town on the map. I wonder if our music loving little man will be at Ilkeston’s own Glow Music Festival in August. Hope so!
Don’t forget. The upcoming Ilkeston Life newspaper is out earlier than usual. The July issue will be out tomorrow, Friday 30th June, instead of the first Friday of the month. Buy your copy from
our office, the U Choose Smoothie Bar, and please note the cafe will be closed for a fortnight after Saturday.
Throwback to that night when Elton John was my backing singer, and 7.6 million people tuned in to watch my flag… Thank you Glastonbury – you were everything I dreamed of and so much more. Until next year…
