11th March Meeting

Greens In Derby City



Please come along, be entertained, meet other local Greens and nibble!
Tickets are £11 per person and available here from Eventbrite

Many, many, thanks…

….to all our donors, supporters, workers, fundraisers, counters, officers and candidates all across Derbyshire in December 2019. We:

*   fielded a record number of candidates
*   raised a record amount of funding and
*   gained a massive amount of experience for future elections!

And nationally, even with the “tactical voting” campaign hitting us pretty hard, we still managed to increase our total vote from 2017, which of course puts money in the Party’s pockets for future campaigns.

Next up will be the Derby City Council elections in the Spring of 2020, so get in touch with the campaign teams and give them all the support you can! Last year we won seats in the Derbyshire Dales, High Peak and Amber Valley. Let’s get some Green into Derby City Council 🙂

HUGE thank you to everyone who has helped fund our efforts so far!

A Green vote is never a wasted vote! Even if we lose, every Green vote helps fund the party. Every Green vote helps further the campaign for electoral reform. Every Green vote is a vote to prevent climate change!

Election Fundraiser! Please Donate!

The third general election in four years has left us struggling to fund candidate deposits for all Derbyshire constituencies. We will be standing in some places, but not everywhere unless we can raise more funds! If you are a UK voter and want a Green Party candidate to vote for in your constituency, please donate using the donate window on the right, or contact the Derbyshire Green Party Treasurer on Many thanks.
