All members and supporters are welcome to come to our AGM on Tuesday 28th February. 7pm in the Montpellier Room, Municipal Offices, Promenade.
The EU referendum has left the UK restless and divided. Many people are unhappy and worried about the future. Many feel they no longer belong here. We are dismayed by the infighting in parliament at a time when politicians should be focusing on bringing the country together. We are proud that the Green Party’s response to this crisis is to propose a pro-EU progressive alliance to fight against the disaster of a Tory-UKIP led Brexit agreement.
The Green Party is tolerant, inclusive and outward looking. We welcome migrants, and the benefits of free movement. We know that by leaving Europe we lose many environmental and workers’ protections – this process has already started - and will need to fight for these to be maintained.
As a local party we are committed to bringing these messages to our community here in Cheltenham. We've met with our MP, Alex Chalk, to find out where he stands on the most important issues arising from the referendum. You can read the minutes of this meeting below.
