At our meeting on Thursday 16th November we welcomed three members of Notts. and Derbys. IWA who presented us with Cheque for £500 towards the purchase of Sandiacre lock cottages. Included in this amount was money they had raised for us by conducting a lock-wind at derwent mouth lock in August. The ECP&DA wish to thank them, not only for the donation but also their support. We would also like to thank all the members and friends of the association plus anonymous parties who also made generous donations.
The purchase of the cottages is well underway and should be completed by Christmas.
