The Sefton Green Party holds regular meetings for members, supporters and anyone interested in Green issues. We meet at 7.00 pm every third Thursday of the month. Meetings are short (rarely more than 90mins) and informal, and a chance to catch up on local issues and camapigns.
For more information, please contact Mike Carter (Local Party Co-ordinator) by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07765 202407.
Sefton Green Party covers the areas of Maghull, Bootle, Waterloo, Litherland, Crosby, Formby and Southport.
We campaign on local, national and international issues and stand candidates in local, and potentially general, elections.
As a member, you can be as active as you like - from armchair and online support to standing as a candidate for election. For more information, please contact Laurence Rankin (Local Party Co-ordinator) by email or telephone as above, or see www.greenparty.org.uk
Students: Join the Green Party for just £5 a year!
Even if you don't want to make the commitment of joining us, we always welcome supporters and volunteers. Volunteers can help with our campaigning work. Could you help deliver leaflets to your street, or go out with our campaign team and speak to local residents about their concerns?
Do you have fundraising experience or web design, press, research and administrative skills? Whatever your level of experience and however much or little time you can give, we would love to hear from you.
Contact Mike Carter (Local Party Co-ordinator) by email or telephone as above for more information about ways you can get involved.
We hope to put in place soon the means to donate electronically to the Sefton Green Party.
In the meantime you could send a cheque to Mike Carter (Local Party Co-ordinator) at 4 Kinross Road, Waterloo, Liverpool, L22 1RS; or speak to Mike about setting up a small monthly standing order.
Although we have contested parish and borough elections in the last few years we have no Green Party councillors on the local council yet. But we aim to change this.
So we need lots of enthusiastic, committed and hard-working candidates. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates.
Candidates must support the main aims and policies of the Green Party. See www.greenparty.org.uk for national aims and policies, and see Sefton Green Party's Local Manifesto for local aims.
This is a carefully sourced and referenced set of facts that counter many Government claims and popular myths:
Caroline Lucas, in a letter to the Guardian, said "Out of 332,237 people surveyed in the Vote for Policies survey before the last election ... over 24% – more than any other party – chose Green policies. The last time people had a chance to vote in elections under proportional representation – the Euro elections of 2009 – the Greens won over a million votes, demonstrating again the growing support for action on the Green agenda."
Visit the website at voteforpolicies.org.uk/and take the survey yourself. Compare "blind" policies from six UK political parties on a range of key issues. After you have chosen the policies you agree with, you are shown which parties they belong to.
Sefton is a great place to live and it deserves the best leadership. Green Party policies can make our area cleaner, greener and more pleasant to live in, for everybody. Elected Green councillors will mean more influence to take Sefton in a better direction for the future.
Join us in making Sefton a great place to live and work in.
