Get Involved

The Green Party is 99% made up of people working as volunteers - this is how we’ve been running for 40 years.  There is so much to do to win elections and run local campaigns we rely on you and welcome your help.  Whatever skillset or ability you have, you will be an asset to us.


Coronavirus Notice

The Shrewsbury and North Shropshire Green Party will be following Green Party advice on the Coronavirus outbreak and have:

  • Suspended any campaigns that involve door knocking or canvassing
  • Cancelled all surgeries and public meetings and events.

In accordance with NHS advice we will continue to distribute newsletters when appropriate however we will take extra hygiene precautions, maintain social distancing and keep this area of activity under close review.

Green representatives on Shrewsbury and Oswestry Town Council are contributing very actively and productively to the support of persons who are self-isolating or affected in any other way by this outbreak. If you want to contribute to this please contact any of our Councillors.

It is vital, and will save lives, if we all follow the advice from the Chief Medical Officer.

Duncan Kerr, Co-ordinator


What you can do

  • Talk to your friends and people you know about the Green Party and why you are interested, encourage them to get involved as well.
  • Come along to one of our events and learn more about the local challenges and campaigns. We were all new to this at some stage so don't be afraid to ask questions.
  • Join the Green Party.
  • Volunteer at one of our events (no membership required)
  • Stand for the council.

We are hoping to inspire both those who have lost confidence in parties they previously supported, and to those who have never voted at all, to Go Green in 2020.
