Tania Turel

Office Manager

Tarn Turei is a gardener, candle maker, a convener of people and markets, but first and foremost she is a Mum. A strong woman with Maori heritage, Tarn transitioned from New Zealand to Derby 20 years ago.

As a Derby resident she has been the driving force behind the Derby Christmas Markets over the past six years, taking pleasure in bringing together local business owners to share their craft and music. Tarn also has her own small-enterprise, Snappy Gum, which produces and sells eco-friendly products and makes them available to the local community at Derby’s weekly CWA markets. Tarn also works for local business, Wattnow Electrical, as an Office Manager.

Tarn has a special place in her heart for supporting women in business and for giving back to her community. She was also instrumental in bringing together the inaugural 2021 Strong Women Business Gathering.
