Welcome to the Friends of Chellaston Brickworks

Local Nature Reserve

The “Friends” are a small group of volunteers who carry out regular work parties to help maintain and enhance this lovely area. Some of the tasks already undertaken have resulted in an increase in the variety of butterflies, amphibians and wild flowers present on the reserve.

Our main aims are to:-
• Maintain and enhance the reserve.
• Protect this vital green space for our local community.
• Provide the correct habitat to encourage a wider range of species.
• Raise awareness of the site
• Provide the opportunity to ‘get involved’.

We are always eager to meet new “Friends” and everyone is welcome to come along regardless of age, ability or knowledge.




Latest News
The reserve has recently been judged for a Community Green Flag award. We were fortunate that the inspection took place on a lovely sunny morning and the site was looking at its best. We will get the results in a few weeks but we are hopeful that all the hard work the 'Friends' group and Derby Parks Volunteers have put in over the last 12 months will pay off and we will gain a third Green Flag. We should be notified early next month and we will post the result as soon as we hear.

Some members of our group also work with the Chellaston Action Group preparing various beds and planters for the Chellaston in Bloom judging, which will take place in the coming weeks. It would be an excellent achievement if Chellaston were to gain two awards this summer.

Thanks to everyone who supported us at the recent Spirit of Chellaston event. All the money we made from our plant sales and children game go towards our running costs, without this we could not maintain the progress we have achieved over recent years. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
