Just a note to tell you about the forthcoming D&SCS social event we are holding at the Navigation, Risley Lane, Breaston on the 19th May 2013 starts at midday. There is an attachment with details of the day.

As impetus steadily grows with the restoration project so the need to increase the profile of the venture increases. The more members and exposure the more “clout” we have in funding applications.

This sponsored social event is designed to promote the project, with news on latest developments, possible engineering solutions and a chance to have a general catch up over a drink. Hopefully we can attract new members and local businesses. As you will see on the attachment, the Derby University are now taking an active role and that is great news alone. I believe we could have some media involvement too.

HS2 and trams are taking up too many conversations, please come along on the 19th, invite friends, neighbours, relatives, business colleagues and we can tell them more about the Canal.
