There are several ways to get involved with the Winchester Green Party.
The Winchester Green Party holds regular meetings for members, supporters and anyone interested in Green issues.
Members meet regularly on the first Wednesday of every month, from 7.30 to 9.30pm at the Hyde Tavern, Hyde Street, Winchester. Each meeting includes a talk and discussion around topics including education, the green economy, local Winchester issues and national Green Party policy.
This is a great opportunity if you have not been to any meetings before, to meet and find out about your local Green Party and we're happy to chat about gardening and not politics for a change!
CHANGE: Our July meeting will be on Wed the 4th starting at 7:30. It will be held at the University of Winchester and the venue is 'The Boardroom' - on the 4th Floor of the University Centre, accessed via the Main Reception. The Boardroom is adjacent to The Stripe Building - Sparkford Road entrance. Postcode: SO22 4SB.

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.
Although we have stood in the area in the last few years we have no Green Party councillors on the local Borough, District or County Councils 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 be paid-up members of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies.
Please get in touch with Rob Parker or Rhian Harrison via the contact us page.
