Belper Tea Rooms Project

The Belper Tea Rooms Project is to benefit from a fund raising auction to be run by Charles Hanson at Strutts on Friday November 3rd. Our volunteers will be selling refreshments to keep you going whilst you enjoy the evening.


Here are the photographs from the Reunion on Saturday 19th August.

The Rain Garden

The rain garden is undergoing a bit of a refresh after an a bit of a disaster. During the winter the couch grass got out of control and the area became a bit of an eyesore. So we have cleaned up and tidied up keeping as much of the existing plants as possible and we are replanting with the recommended mix of plants to reestablish this important feature.

For the fiture we need a team of gardeners to take on the care of this area so if you have an interest in gardening and would like to help we would love to hear from you - come help your community project.

Books for sale

We often have book sales at Strutts but few people seem to realise that you can purchase our books any time reception is open. This means that if you want to find a book just come and brows our collection and when you find a book (the books) you want bring them to reception to pay. We have several hundred books on display and available most of the time, most are paper backs but we also have a smaller number of hardbacks.

So next time you are passing just drop in and have a look.

We have the space for you

In line with the wishes expressed in the original covenant we have opened the building for all sorts of activities. Everybody is welcome to come along hire our rooms and organise all kinds of events and activities. As well as social and community activities we welcome businesses into the building to present exhibitions and have meetings, in fact you can organise almost anything that is legal and does not interfere with others within the building.

If you want free publicity on this web site tell us when you book your room or if you already have a booking get in contact and tell us about your club or event and we will do our best.

The War Memorials at Strutts are recorded on the official website. There are also links to other websites holding very interesting images of HSS history. Click on Simple Search - and put in Belper, then Herbert Strutts School then, leaving the rest, click search.
