Sian Berry, Co-leader of the Green Party, visited Worcester (11/4/19) to lend her support to local party activists ahead of the local elections being held on 2nd May.
The Green Party are fielding candidates in all 11 wards involved in this year's Worcester City Council elections. Green group leader Cllr Louis Stephen said, 'This is to give everyone a chance to vote Green if they want to.'
It seems that the Green's highest hopes lie in St Stephen ward, where they already have fellow Greens Cllr Neil Laurenson representing the city ward and Cllr Matthew Jenkins representing the area at county council level.
The biggest issues facing the area are residents' concerns about a possible football ground being built on Perdiswell Park, the lack of safe crossings on the busy Bilford Road, as well as the now much-reduced bus services covering the area.
Speaking near the shop on the busy Bilford Road, Sian Berry, Green Party Co-leader, said:
'I've seen first-hand the difficult crossing by the shop on Bilford Road and I know that our elected Green councillors will not rest until we get a better crossing. It's quite simple, if you want a councillor that will stand up for residents' interests rather than toeing the party line, please support Marjory Bisset.'
Louis, Matthew, Sian and Marjory.
Green Party Meetings
All Green Party members are welcome to come along to our monthly meeting to discuss our plans for Worcester and Worcestershire.

We are currently raising money for the £500 needed to stand a candidate in each of the six constituencies across Worcestershire - £3,000 in total. Can you afford to chip-in £5, £10 or £20 to enable everyone to vote Green if they want to? www.crowdfunder.co.uk/general-election-2019---deposits/
Worcester City Museum has no public cycle parking. The City Museum is situated on a cycle lane. Cycle parking would mean that City Museum visitors can make sustainable transport choices and help ease the City's traffic congestion.
