Thank you for your help!
Your county party co-chairs, Cheryl and Chris, would like to thank everyone who worked so hard for these recent elections. Any help you have been able to give has been much appreciated. Dick Woolf has kept his seat in the Oxford City Council for his ward in St Mary's, keeping a strong Green voice in the city. Other successes have included a very respectable second place for Ian Middleton in Kidlington East (Cherwell District Council) which provides a strong basis for future campaigning there.[Read more]
Just days before the local election, Council condemn community centre
On the 29th April 2018, just days before the local elections, the City Council have condemned the East Oxford Community Centre B-block, leaving organisations including the East Oxford Community Association (EOCA) without a home. Somewhat ironically, EOCA used to manage the Centre until the City Council forcibly took back control a couple of years ago. Since the Council takeover B-block has been allowed to deteriorate in preparation, it became clear, for planned demolition and sell-off of the site.[Read more]
Learn how to print leaflets at a training session - ready for our 2018-19 campaigns.
We printed and delivered 10,000 leaflets for the general election on our own Riso printer. Over the next year we will need to print thousands of ward newsletters to introduce the Green party to residents then leaflets to get our first Green councillor elected outside Oxford.
To do that, we need more trained volunteers.
You will learn how to run machines that print and fold 100 pages/minute.
This is a training session for Oxfordshire Green Party members and volunteers on how to use data to organise our campaigning. Every election campaign team and every branch of the party needs a trained data manager to make sure we effectively collect, manage and use data.
All political parties need to collect data on voters (will they vote for us?), volunteers (when and how can they help?) and members. Effective data use can make the difference between winning or losing.
Since 2013, the Oxfordshire Green Party, like many others, has used the NationBuilder software to manage our contacts, our web site and our emails. I have run online training sessions. This is a face-to-face training session to give you skills needed to search through our data and use it to run events, canvass voters and organise volunteers. There will be exercises in:
Once you have mastered those skills, you will find it much easier and quicker to organise Green Party activities in your area.
