Volunteer to help

Making sure Caroline Lucas is re-elected in Brighton is a big priority for the Green Party. The team in Brighton welcome all the help they can get, talking to voters both in person and by phone, delivering leaflets and on election day itself. If you would like to help, please contact info@brightonandhovegreenparty.org.uk

Local election: can you help in Redhill?

The local Green Party is defending one of its three seats in Redhill. Our three councillors in Redhill are currently the only elected Greens in Surrey – we need to support them!

We will be canvassing and leafletting on most weekday evenings and weekends between now and the election. There will be a particular push to leaflet on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 April. If you can help, please contact info@rbgp.org.uk with details of when you’re available and how you would like to help.
