Message from the Council Leader, Councillor Barry Lewis

Last Saturday, (18 April 2020) the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, RT Hon Robert Jenrick MP issued a letter to all who work in local government.


In his letter, he thanks all of you for the vital work you are doing to support our community during the coronavirus pandemic. He acknowledges that across local government people are going the extra mile and that is certainly true here in Derbyshire.

I too would like to thank all of you for the efforts you are making to support and protect local residents and business. The demonstration of Derbyshire spirt has been incredible!

Please read the full letter from the Secretary of State and feel rightly proud of everything you are doing at this very challenging time.
