The Gloucester Green Party holds regular meetings for members, supporters and anyone interested in Green issues. We meet once a month and more often during election campaigns.
For more information, please contact Rob Brookes (Co-ordinator, Gloucester Green Party) by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07974 868752.
We campaign on local, national and international issues and will be standing candidates in the City and General Election.
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 Frances Griffiths (Co-ordinator) by email or telephone as above.
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 Rob Brookess (Co-ordinator) as above for more information about ways you can get involved.
Gloucester Green Party is not funded by big business, trade unions or very wealthy individuals. The Gloucester Green Party is funded through the generosity of ordinary people like you. Not everyone has the time to be active within the party but everything from printing leaflets to hiring meeting rooms costs money. You can help our campaign to get a Green Councillor in Gloucester.

We have stood in the area in the last many years but have not yet been successful in gaining a Gloucester council seat. We have however increased our share of the vote and dramatically increased our membership. We have this year for the first time enough enthusiastic candidates to stand for each ward in the city in next years elections.
We need enthusiastic, committed candidates. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates.
Candidates must be paid-up members of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies.
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 Vote for Policies and take the survey yourself. Compare 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.
