Monday shopping, Tuesday Golf, Wednesday working on restoring the canal, Thursday day off, Friday/Saturday/Sunday family days.
How does this sound to you?
Have you got spare time on a Wednesday to help restore the Derby and Sandiacre Canal back to its former glory?
We are launching a mid-week working party to get you out of the house, meet new people, get some exercise and do some good for the local community.
Work will involve scrub clearing, general tidy up of the canal stretch, grass cutting and more, and by getting maintenance work done during the week we can concentrate on restoration work at weekends.
All work is supervised, we always have a trained first aider on site, and equipment is supplied, all you need is a smile, bring a flask or water, stout shoes and gloves. Some of our Sunday team bring their own hand held non mechanical cutters and/or a rake as these are always useful. And of course please join us as a member (£8 p.a.), you’ll be fully covered by our insurance.
We are proposing to launch our first “Working Wednesday” on the 24th August located at Borrowash bottom lock to continue the ground clearance that we have started this year, we will be meeting at 09.30 and working until around lunch time (or earlier if fatigue sets in). Any time you can spare is a real help.
Please contact Eddy Case to register your interest. We look forward to seeing you.
All of our working party dates for both weekends and Wednesday can be found in our Working Party Diary.
