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. 

 

For Detail of regular Church Services, please click here

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.

Our next event is the Great Mickleover Scarecrow Festival

 

 

Our most recent major event was our Giant Water Slide which was held 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

Our previous event was the Spring Fair on Spring Bank Holiday. The main road was closed between the Tesco roundabout and All Saints Church as it was at Christmas and a  stage for entertainment was set up  in front of the Post Office.  There were Stalls, a Funfair,  food, games and many other things to entertain. you. It was very well supported and only slightly spoiled by the rain. Some pictures are shown below.

We hope that you enjoyed  our Christmas  event on Sunday 1st December 2013 when thousands of people enjoyed the Our Mickleover Christmas Festival in the centre of the village, with a funfair, Christmas stalls, carol singing, a brass band, Santa's Grotto and a professional firework display. Some photos are shown below.

 

 


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 …
