  • Spondon Social Safari

Spondon’s annual Social Safari will take place this year on Saturday and Sunday 8th and 9th July. As before, the “safari stops” will open at varying times so you should be able to see them all!
This year, the Mayor of Derby, Councillor John Whitby will be officially opening the Safari at 10am on the Saturday in the Sensory Garden on Chapel Street.
The Sensory Garden will include a new feature for this year’s Safari – a scarecrow trail, with contributions from Spondon’s Guides and Brownies. There are many other scarecrows around the village for you to spot.
These, and all the open gardens, are detailed in the free programme. This will be available at the Library and other shops Thursday 15th June, as well as an online version at For those who are adept at such things there is also a Facebook page.
As ever, you will not be short of refreshment at the open gardens and there will be a wide variety of displays, stalls and entertainment for all ages. Participants are supporting a wide variety of good causes and will also be making a contribution to the Village Improvement Committee, who organise the event, with sterling efforts by Mel Griffiths.
