Those marked * will join existing subcommittees as a result of the merger. The working Parties Subcommittee will be a new grouping encompassing half of the current Society Committee. All but one of the existing Society Committee will attend two or more Trust subcommittees.
As and when we are able, we will attend shows and events, the monthly meeting will resume, you will still have to suffer my updates, the only thing to change will be a reduction in the number of virtual meetings that people are asked to attend.
The meeting will be held on zoom at 7.30pm on Tuesday 24th November, if you would like to receive an invitation please email Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Papers will be made available at www.derbycanal.org.uk/agm
Working parties did resume, after a full review of the health and safety issues involved, we managed to get all the hedges at Draycott finished (top picture), and a lot of work at Borrowash, but alas with the covid outbreak increasing again we have decided to stop all gardening teams until things improve.
Work at the cottages continues with a very limited team all working under tight restrictions. Picture (right) shows the new retaining wall next to the main road. Maintenance of the paths, trees and hedgerows has been continuing in a social distanced manner.
