Work by Ey Up Mi Duck author goes on display
WRITING by a popular Derbyshire author will go on display at a new museum exhibition.
Erewash Museum is putting together a new collection of artefacts of painting and writing sourced from local artists.
This will include work by Ey Up Mi Duck co-author Rick Scollins, who sold more than 10,000 books worldwide from the popular series, credited with preserving and restoring pride in the speech of the Erewash valley.
Since his death in 1992, the author and painter has had a street named after him – Scollins Court is off Heanor Road, Ilkeston.

The museum will also have a selection of artwork, including work by Ian McIntyre and artefacts relating to Ernest Terah Hooley, a local financier in the late-19th century, who was famous for creating the Trafford Park estate in Manchester, the world's first industrial park.
The display in the Lally Gallery of Erewash Museum opened on Thursday and runs until January 15.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council's lead member for culture and leisure, said:"Rick Scollins is one of Ilkeston's finest sons and I am hugely looking forward to seeing some of his previously unseen work."
Erewash Museum in High Street, Ilkeston, is open Monday to Saturday. Admission is free.
