After an exceptional period of elections both locally and nationally all local elections for 2020 have been postponed until 2021. We had active campaigns running in Witney North and Eynsham where we were confident of winning at least one ward which would have given us our first Green District Councillor for a very long time. However the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic has eliminated that opportunity and we have moved our sights onto the 2021 local elections.

Having postponed the 2020 District and Town/Parish council elections means that we will be in the very unusual situation in May 2021 of fighting both district council and county council elections alongside each other. In those elections there will be 10 seats in the County Divisions; 17 seats in the District Council Wards and 140 seats in 19 different Town and Parish Councils. We already have nominations for some of the seats and will be sending out nomination invites later this year. If you are interested in putting your name forward please contact the Branch Chair, Barry Wheatley

This an opportunity to get the green voice heard at all levels of local government. Given our limited financial resources we will be heavily dependant upon volunteers assisting the development of our campaign over the next months. If you can help either with time, resources and/or skills, such as generating content for newsletters and social media please contact our Deputy Chair Frances Mortimer 

Alternatively if you would like to help sponsor our campaign please visit our donation page. We rely entirely on your donations and membership to campaign in West Oxfordshire. Unlike other parties we do not receive funds from corporations, non-doms, trade unions or such likes. Your personal donation is our only source of income. Even the smallest donation will be helping to make a big difference.
