The Belper Recorder Group

Belper Recorder Group is a small friendly group that usually meets twice a month at The Strutts Centre. We enjoy playing a veriety of music mostly fr our own pleasure, but we give occasional public performances. Our music is mostly writen for four parts; descant, treble, tenor and bass recorders. However, we are hoping to expand into contra-bass.

We welcome new members who cna read music and play recorder at improver/intermediate level. Why not come to a session and meet us? You don['t have to play straight away.....

For more information please telephone Jasmine on 01335 370863 or email

The Rain Garden

The rain garden is undergoing a bit of a refresh after an a bit of a disaster. During the winter the couch grass got out of control and the area became a bit of an eyesore. So we have cleaned up and tidied up keeping as much of the existing plants as possible and we are replanting with the recommended mix of plants to reestablish this important feature.

For the fiture we need a team of gardeners to take on the care of this area so if you have an interest in gardening and would like to help we would love to hear from you - come help your community project.

Books for sale

We often have book sales at Strutts but few people seem to realise that you can purchase our books any time reception is open. This means that if you want to find a book just come and brows our collection and when you find a book (the books) you want bring them to reception to pay. We have several hundred books on display and available most of the time, most are paper backs but we also have a smaller number of hardbacks.

So next time you are passing just drop in and have a look.


Britain in Bloom 2017

Well Belper has done it again with a Gold Medal in three out of four categories. I'm glad to say we at Strutts got two special mentions one for the rain garden and one for the flower garden at the north end of the site, the one one we know colloquially as Albert's Garden.

This is fantastic for both Strutts and Belper and everybody who contributed should be congratulated, well done.
