Derbyshire has four candidates with Peter Allen in the High Peak constituency; Lee Fletcher in Erewash; Josh Stockell in the Derbyshire Dales and Duncan Kerr in Chesterfield.  Peter Allen says “I am delighted that voters in Derbyshire will now have the chance to vote Green. This election will be the most important in recent times: Britain and the world face a perfect storm as we suffer the worst financial crisis in living memory, only the Green Party offers the right response, with our programme for sustainable living and social justice.”

    I have been in touch with Duncan Kerr regarding a Christian-organised hustings on Wed 28th. I need to be in touch again, but no address is given for him on the calling notice outside the Town hall. Please can I have a suface-mail address or phone number?
