One more final push at Sandiacre this week, the aim to clear the scrub cut away last week and to finish the agreed replacement of a fence line along the canal lock that is due to be dug out this year. 16 members turned out on a wonderfully Sunday morning to help in various aspects of this project.

One team of 4 completed the fence laying that secures the property that adjoins the bottom lock, the other two teams set about clearing the scrub created last week and a general tidy up of the local area.

Work will now move to the Borrowash/Spondon area after the Easter break. We have a newly trained chainsaw operator that will mean we can do even more important work along the canal stretch.
Full details of all working party dates are available on our web site; along with full details of membership and our growing social meetings held every month at the Wilmot Arms in Borrowash.

Picture shows a rare group photograph of some most of the team.
