Ellie’s campaign gears up

The first 10 days of the campaign have been busy!  I’ve been out campaigning in Ledbury and Leominster during the week, as well as at the Hereford River Carnival, the Spring Greens Fair, and the Big Apple Blossomtime festival over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Meanwhile we’ve designed, printed, and distributed our first leaflets and posters, and made dozens of signboards – which are already being put up by supporters all around the constituency.  Volunteers have phoned all of our local Green Party members, too, mobilising activists.

We’ve got an ever-expanding calendar of campaign events, which you can see here.  There are Campaign Action Days every Saturday all around the constituency:

  • Ledbury: 6 May
  • Leominster: 13 May
  • Kington: 20 May
  • Bromyard: 27 May
  • Ledbury, Leominster and Kington: 3 June

These are a great way to meet fellow Greens locally and help spread the word by working together.  Do get in touch if you can come along and help.

Herefordshire Greens will also be hosting two ‘Big Green Conversation’ events during the campaign:

  • Weds 24th May: ‘Why Equality is Better for Everyone’, with Martin Wilkinson from the Equality Trust. De Koffie Pot, Hereford, 7.30pm.
  • Friday 2nd June: ‘Europe and the Environment’, with Jill Hanna from the European Commission.  The Burgage Hall, Ledbury, 7.30pm.

All are welcome to come along and discuss these key political issues in an informal, conversational atmosphere.

There will be election hustings in Leominster on Friday 12 May at 7pm, and in Ledbury (date tbc) – a good opportunity to grill the candidates on the issues you care about.

I’ll post weekly updates here on the website, but for daily updates please follow the campaign on Facebook and Twitter – and help spread the word!  Thanks for your support.
