Derwent Diary

The Derwent Diary is a quarterly, printed, community newsletter for the Derwent area of Chaddesden. Derwent Diary will be distributed door to door in Autumn, and from pick up points around the area in Winter, Spring and Summer – if your local shop or community venue in Derwent (Chad) don’t have any, or you want to join the team, get in touch!

To receive these newsletters by email, join the Derwent Diary mailing list, and please follow Derwent Diary on facebook!
