Derby has a special place in the history of green cities as Derby Arboretum was the first green space to be deliberately planned as a place of public recreation in an urban setting, being donated to the City of Derby in 1840.
Helen Hitchcock is the Derby City Coordinator, and stood in Derby North in the 2019 general election.
“I’m a musician, teacher and parent from Derby. I am the child of disabled parents. I am interested in promoting social justice, an education system that focuses on the needs and development of children, and opens up life long learning to all, in a health and social system that supports all in dignity. Above all I am concerned with the climate emergency facing us right now.”
