A big Thank You to all who helped make this year's Derby Day Fete a great success. Your contribution supports the Parish Schools as well as the Parish.

Thanks to the many people whose help ensured that no stone was left unturned in the quest for another Great Derby Day Fete:
Stallholders and their helpers, Sponsors, Workers, Donors of goods and Entertainers. 

While the Fete takes the best part of twelve months to put into place, it is the generous spirit so freely given with so many 'hands on deck' that makes the day so special. 

The fund-raising is helpful, but the spirit of community and the engagement of so many people as workers, patrons, contributors of goods for sale, and helpers of all kinds is really the core of our Fete.  

To all Parishioners; to all who have a connection with St Mary’s; to our School Families and the staff of our Schools; to everyone who has helped in any way
– an immense, heart-felt vote of thanks to each and all - 
from the Fete Committee





A sincere thank you to the volunteers who helped with preparation, transport, setting up, selling and packing up at the Show Bag Stall on Fete day. Many, many thanks also to those parishioners, businesses and organisations which supported the stall with donations.


Please support our sponsors
