Work begins on new Canoe Club HQ
Contractors are now on site at the Midland Canoe Club's premises between the Derwent and Darley and Nutwood Nature Reserve preparing the site to receive the new prefabricated clubhouse. Massive articulated lorries have been squeezing down the narrow access track and churning the unsurfaced road into a quagmire. A few weeks previously council workmen removed a number of trees and branches to make room for the monster vehicles. Hopefully, the pain will be worth the gain as the num building will improve the club's facilities significantly.
