Who We Are

Tom Snowdon Heading

Whether you live within a short radius of the Crooked Spire or much further afield, you are most welcome.

Chesterfield is a town of nearly 100,000 people - about 40,000 households - in the north eastern part of Derbyshire. The parliamentary constituency coincides more or less with the Borough of Chesterfield. Local government is provided here at two or three levels: Derbyshire County Council, which sits in Matlock and the local Borough Council. Within the Borough of Chesterfield, Staveley also has its own Town Council and Brimington has its own Parish Council too.

Between 2001 to 2010, The Liberal Democrats held the Parliamentary seat of Chesterfield, and for 8 years between 2003-11, the Liberal Democrats ran the Borough Council.

We are proud of what was achieved in those years and that we laid the seeds for much of the town to continue to prosper. We believe and have shown in local government here when in office that ordinary working people get a better deal from us than their alternative choices - but we need more help to continue the work.

If you are interested in and motivated to help us strive to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which together we can seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community where no-one should be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity we would love to hear from you.
