Welcome to the Mickleover website. For although it is a suburb of Derby, Mickleover has its own identity and is often referred to as “The Village” by locals. This site has been created to bring together information from a wide range of sources into one place, to give residents, visitors and those considering a move here a good overall picture of everything you can do in the village.

is a group of Mickleover people who have the aim of binding together our ever-expanding suburb to keep that ‘village’ feel. To learn more, click here or on our Facebook Page.

The next event will be the Mickleover by the Sea on Sunday 28th August. Come along from 12noon and enjoy the Beach, Punch and Judy, Surfing, Funfair, Food and Entertainment.

See Facebook for more details.

Our most recent event was the Mickleover Summer Fete, held in the centre of the village and enjoyed by over 8000 people. Part of the main road was closed to make room for the funfair, stalls, food and entertainment.

 

We had planned to have our 2015 Christmas Festival on Advent Sunday, 29th Nov. Unfortunately it had to be called off at the last moment because of the high wind and the consequent danger of injury and damage. It was the first event that we have had to call off due to bad weather.  We look forward to our new programme for 2016.

Each year we have also held a Scarecrow Festival in September 

These were the Scarecrows at the Methodist Church in the 2015 Scarecrow Festival.

 

in 2014, we also held a Giant Water Slide on the 7th September. This became a nationally recognised event and attracted visitors from all over the country. It was held on Kipling Drive. Sponsored by Huub and MBS, the proceeds went to Cancer UK.

As  you browse this site, you will find lots of links – to the sporting and social activities which take place here or have connections here; to the facilities which are available for hire, and how to book them; to statistics and to wider organisations with an interest in the area. You will also find out some of our history, and some suggestions for local walks and cycle paths. More will be added as information is collected, but there is already a lot to explore – Library, Churches, Buses, Community Centre …
