(Virtual) Social Meeting – Talk

Normally the 4th Tuesday of each month, the Derby & Sandiacre Canal Trust invites a guest speaker to present to the Trust on a topic of interest. From experience they are usually very engaging and interesting (at least for those that enjoy Canals, History, Engineering, Nature, and all things in between). Given recent Covid-19 restrictions; we have had to hold these virtually over Zoom, but are now re-introducing meetings in person.

NOTE: From October 2021; it will be the 1st Wednesday of every month!

Meetings are held via Zoom & are restarting in person at the Royal Oak in Ockbrook.

Details for joining Zoom are provided to members via email – contact membership@derbycanal.org.uk if you are not getting emails currently.
