(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 the current Covid-19 restrictions; we have had to hold these virtually over Zoom!

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