Our great May Bank Holiday Monday Car Boot Sale runs from 8:30am till 1:00pm.

We are now able to take bookings for pitches via Strutts Reception on 01773 59993. We are sorry but we will not accept anything bigger than a Transit; so no Lorries and No Trailers. Cars will cost £8 and Vars £10. All pitches must be booked in advance.

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.

We have the space for you

In line with the wishes expressed in the original covenant we have opened the building for all sorts of activities. Everybody is welcome to come along hire our rooms and organise all kinds of events and activities. As well as social and community activities we welcome businesses into the building to present exhibitions and have meetings, in fact you can organise almost anything that is legal and does not interfere with others within the building.

If you want free publicity on this web site tell us when you book your room or if you already have a booking get in contact and tell us about your club or event and we will do our best.

The War Memorials at Strutts are recorded on the official website. There are also links to other websites holding very interesting images of HSS history. Click on Simple Search - and put in Belper, then Herbert Strutts School then, leaving the rest, click search.
