2018 will be our 26th Derby!! don’t miss it!
Date for 2018: Sunday 9th September.
Another fantastic Dinosaur Derby was held this year with all the favourite attractions plus a few surprises. We were blessed with fine dry and very warm weather. This ensured a record turnout and once again we had families from all over the area. All events proved popular and this year we recognised the 20th Anniversary of the event, and Olympic year by presenting medals to the winners of each race. Our grateful thanks go to all our sponsors and advertisers for helping to get the event off to a good financial start. We had outstanding support on the run-up to the event with sales of programmes being run again on a distributed rather than central basis. We also had fantastic support on the day from parents, children and stallholders and this ensured another successful Derby. In the end we raised over £6000 for the Group to put us in a strong position for the forthcoming year. Angela Harwood, Group Scout Leader said “I would like to say a big thankyou to all who helped make the Dinosaur Derby a tremendous success again this year. This will go a long way to keeping Scouting alive and well in Denmead in these difficult times. See you next year!”
