Upcoming events

Here is a calendar of Green events in SE England: not just ones run by the Green Party, but also others of interest to Green Party sympathisers. Please come along to an event nearby, and meet your Greens.

Young Greens have come up with a helpful guide to planning an accessible event - lots of ideas here

    Ryde Pierhead Ferry Terminal

    Isle of Wight action day

                           

    The South East Young Greens are organising a collective outing this weekend, which will be centered in Ryde.

    Other Green Party members and supporters are also very welcome to come along.  

    You can help us win another Green MP. We're campaigning to win in the Isle of Wight to get Vix Lowthion elected. Vix says:

    "Please come to the sunny Isle of Wight to join our campaign, I believe we can win here, help us turn the island Green".

    To win we need to contact thousands of householders by delivering leaflets and knocking on doors. The Isle of Wight team need help from people who can door knock - training will be provided for canvassing. We've recently gained a Green councillor on the Isle of Wight and came a good second in many seats for the Isle of Wight Council. But the Isle of Wight Green Party can't reach all the Green voters on their own. Your efforts can make a real difference.

    Please come over for the day or weekend, meet the team, get some training (if you need it) and set off out to win votes. If you'd like to stay overnight please let the IOW team know and they will aim to find you a home stay with a member. 

    Young Greens: camping is being organised or there are homestays available. Please let the IOW contact know.

    Meet at 11am at the Esplanade bus station in Ryde (the ferry from Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde Pierhead leaving at 1015 would arrive in time). You can walk down the Pier or get the shuttle train service which connects with the ferry.

    If you can come along please email volunteer co-ordinator Jenny Agricola membership@isleofwight.greenparty.org.uk and she will be in touch with joining instructions. You can also RSVP below but emailing Jenny is the most important thing to do. Thank you.  

    Save the date: Eve of Poll June 7 and Polling Day June 8 – we will be posting details for this soon.

    Travel tips: buy an all in one train and ferry ticket to keep the cost down. Travel together to get Group savings, and use railcards. Cars are expensive on ferries. There is an access fund for Young Greens (50% of train fare refunded until we run out of funds). First come, first served. Bikes are useful for getting around. Your local party co-ordinators are being asked to organise group days out in your area. Please contact them for details.

    General Election 2017

    Greens will be standing in most constituencies in the General Election on June 8. We'll be campaigning to keep our Green MP Caroline Lucas and win more seats.

    You can help in many ways, if you aren't already. Thanks to everyone who is standing as a candidate, helping organise Freepost leaflets, raising funds, taking care of the selection process, publicising our messages and supporting the target campaigns.

    We will be posting here details of action days which South East Greens can support. They will be in Brighton, the Isle of Wight and Bristol. 

    You can also support our fundraiser to help local parties unable to fund their deposits. If you donate to the Deposit Bond scheme you will be helping give people the opportunity to vote Green as well as providing much needed confidence to local parties. Money is on a return basis if deposits are saved.

    South East Region Activist Day

    Come and join us for an activists day in Reading on July 22nd – meet fellow Greens, enjoy training and discussions, and celebrate our election successes. Our campaigning to win in 2018 starts now!

    The South East Green Party has arranged a day to mobilise around our target election campaigns for 2018, to celebrate our successes and to discuss how we can build resilient local parties to grow more Green councillors.  Deputy Leader Amelia Womack will launch the day at 10am. We are aiming to keep our Green Councillor in Reading and win another seat - Cllr Rob White will be explaining how you can help and why it's important to have Greens on councils across the region. 

    The event will be an opportunity for parties from across the region to get together and share skills and ideas. The day will offer:

    • A chance to hear from inspirational speakers including Amelia Womack, Cllr Rob White from Reading, South East Chair Jonathan Essex and others
    • Training Sessions (including sessions on how to knock on doors and win votes; campaign literature; the power of the phone; how to build membership and mobilise your members)
    • Informal workshops (chances to discuss political issues and share campaigning ideas)
    • Space to catch up with old friends and meet new ones!

    About the venue and how to get there:

    The day is being held in the Reading International Solidarity Centre (RISC). It’s a fantastic venue, offering meeting rooms, a great bookshop and an Ethiopian Cafe. Reading is easily accessible by train from nearly anywhere in the South East. The venue itself is just a 10 min walk from the train station. The venue has disabled access and a hearing loop. There is disabled parking outside (other paid parking is within a few minutes' walk).

    *Please note that the event begins at 10am, whilst registration opens at 9.30am. 

    Food and Drink:

    Tea and coffee is available throughout the day, at no extra cost.

    A vegan lunch is provided onsite at an extra cost which is pre-paid with your ticket. This is an Ethiopian injera (pancake) with two fillings. There’s also a gluten-free option. Alternatively, you can try one of the nearby cafes, or bring a packed lunch.

    Tickets: 

    Tickets cost £20 full price, £10 low waged; £1 unwaged/students. 

    Lunch: Add the Ethiopian lunch at £7.00. We need to know numbers for lunch a week in advance so it's advisable to add this when you book.
