Introducing the New DDO Family!  - Derby Days Out Blog
20th November 2018


There's going to be a new face of DDO - well five new faces to be precise! We'd like to introduce you to Sarah, Scott, Mya, Holly and Rocky the dog! Scroll down to find out more about the new team in the Q&A!

After three years it's time for Natalie, Adam, Lola and Poppy to say farewell to DDO and let Sarah and her family take over the reigns.

As you may know, Natalie set up DDO in 2015 after she found it so difficult to find what's on for families in Derby. Many sites were out of date or didn't have relevant information. So she took matters into her own hands and set up

Fast forward just three years later and we have grown to become an award winning, largest event listing website in Derbyshire, a trusted source of information for parents, carers, grandparents aunts and uncles to find exciting events, cool clubs and awesome attractions for children and families across Derbyshire.

We have a great mix of new and returning visitors to our website every day and a fantastic social media following too of over 12,000 and growing daily!

Sarah, who has been working alongside Natalie on DDO for the last year and a half, will be putting her own spin on DDO but providing up to date and exciting information for you will still be her top priority.

You may still see Natalie pop up occasionally on the website as she hopes to continue to create some interesting content such as reviews and blogs for you.

So I hope you will join us in making Sarah and her family feel welcome as they begin their exciting journey as the new faces of DDO!

Thank you, as always, for your continued support.

Natalie, Adam, Lola and Poppy aka the DDO Family Part 1!
