Lian Pizzey has become the first Green councillor in Amber Valley, having been co-opted on to Smalley Parish Council, where he had regularly been attending meetings as a member of the public.
“All over the country Green councillors have a reputation for listening to and working hard for their communities, and I’m looking forward to getting involved and doing just that for Smalley,” said Lian.
Lian came to Derbyshire in the 1990s to study Youth and Community Work at DerbyUniversity and has never left. He has worked across the county in youth offending, children in care and substance misuse services. Finally he was inspired to join the Green Party in 2014 as no-one else seemed interested in what he considered to be the key issues facing our communities.
