About us

Derbyshire Carers Association was founded by Gerry Fryer in 1988 following circumstances which found him in the caring position as described by himself here.

Once he realised how little support there was for Carers Gerry aimed for and met his aspiration for Carer support provision.

With the help of some other Carers, Derbyshire Carers Association gained it’s first paid employee in 1989, this has now grown to over 30 dedicated and passionate employees as well as a large number of volunteers.

Derwent stories Butterflies, Bumbles and Picnics

Umbrella Derby and Derbyshire are putting on this fabulous event for families with children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability.

Derwent stories Butterflies, Bumbles and Picnics

Date: Monday 6th August 2018, Darley Park, Derby, 11am – 4pm, so choose a time within that and come and join them. Activities will happen as people are ready for them (see below) – latest time for new arrivals is 3pm
How to find them: they are aiming to base themselves in the Butterfly Garden or on the lawns hear the Café so head for the Darley Abbey Park Tearooms. For parking, try the car park on Darley St, DE22 1DX
Cost: the event is free, access to the Park is free and car parking at Darley St is free
Access: the site has good paths, short grass and some slopes and overall movement is easy
Booking: no booking necessary, just drop by and join in

Their plan is for a relaxed day looking at the flowers and insects of the Park. There will be a bumble and butterfly survey to try. You can listen to wildlife stories and add your own, and help them make up some completely new ones. There will be wildlife wanders and chances to draw, sketch, scribble and print the animals and plants we find.

Bring a picnic to extend your visit and enjoy open spaces, old trees and room to run and roll

Like all the Derwent Stories events, “Butterflies, bumbles and picnics” is open to anyone but is planned for and structured around families including children with additional needs
