Ellie outside Parliament - let's put her in it!

Calling Green supporters in North Herefordshire!

This General Election is a great opportunity for us to raise our voices against damaging Tory cuts and a risky hard Brexit – and to campaign positively for our vision of a thriving green economy, fair politics, and proper investment in public services.

We’re planning an action-packed campaign including Action Days in all the market towns, leafleting across the constituency, and a busy schedule of meetings and visits all over North Herefordshire.

Can you help?

We really do need all hands on deck!  Please get in touch if you can help with:

  • Displaying a poster in your window – and/or a roadside signboard
  • Leafleting and canvassing – either alongside an Action Day in a town, or as part of an evening bike ride in the more rural areas, or simply in your own time in your own local area.
  • Getting the message out in other ways – please send me suggestions for groups I should talk to, events I should attend, and great local initiatives (community projects, green businesses etc.) that I should visit and learn about.

Get in touch by emailing ellie@greenherefordshire.org.uk, or use the contact form here.  Let’s send a message to the Tories: they shouldn’t take North Herefordshire for granted!

Skill Up!

As we move into 2017, a two year run up to winning more seats in local elections in May 2019, and a possible early general election, we urgently need to think about skilling-up our members and building an organised and effective campaign team.
So let’s start the new year as we mean to go on with a large Herefordshire contingent to the West Midlands Regional Conference on January 7th, which will be at the Priory Rooms in Birmingham City Centre 10am-5.15pm. This is the training and networking event of the year in the West Midlands, and is a fantastic opportunity to skill-up members and volunteers.
There are some great training sessions lined up, covering issues such as engaging more members and volunteers, producing engaging newsletters, and crafting election-winning messages.
It’s also a chance to inspire newer or less active members to get more involved. There is a session with our fantastic West Mids Mayoral candidate James Burn, and Green Party Deputy Leader Amelia Womack is a special guest speaker.
Entry to this event is at the bargain price of £8 on the door, or £6 if people pay in advance via paypal. Those on low or no incomes can book the bursary fund rate, which is free.
Donations above the cost of the ticket are gladly accepted in order to help cover costs and contribute to the bursary fund. Whichever attendees decide to do, we’re still asking people to register in advance so we have an idea of numbers.
Members should register using the booking link. Any problems please get in touch: julien.pritchard@greenparty.org.uk. And if you do register, let Herefordshire branch know too – we might be able to share travel or sit together on the train!
