Those residents of DRW who are vigilant and indeed interested enough to read my profile on the Erewash Borough Council website may know that I am one of two EBC appointees on the Derby & Sandiacre Canal Trust.
Such residents may also be aware that the Derby & Sandiacre Canal originally ran through the middle of the Sandiacre end of DRW.
As a Trust member I know the sterling work that the Derby & Sandiacre Canal Society does in clearing the route of the canal.
I note from an article in the latest Long Eaton Website Extra that the society is not usually out working the route in the summer months but have been out clearing the Spondon Winding Hole this month.
To find out more about the project and the society follow this link: http://derbycanal.org.uk/working-party-update-2nd-august-2015/
