Green Councillor gets mis-directed ‘hate mail’ over St Clements Ward renaming
"It is not me that is suggesting abolishing St. Clement's Ward" states Green Councillor, Craig Simmons. "The proposals I, along with my Green colleagues and local residents, submitted to the Boundary Commission clearly show the continued existence of St. Clement's."
 "I did suggest the renaming of an expanded St. Mary's Ward (a nearby ward that was only formed in 2000 and which includes the University running track) in honour of Oxford athlete and neurologist Sir Roger Bannister, who sadly died earlier this year.  But the City's Council's Labour Group decided instead to rename St. Clement's Ward - a suggestion I opposed. St. Clement's is a long established community that extends from The Plain east along St. Clement's Street and north of the Cowley Road. I can see why residents are angry that this name might disappear - but they need to target those responsible for this and express their opposition to the Boundary Commission."

Rural Greens Get Together

This month, instead of asking people to come to a meeting in a big town, we are inviting rural Green sympathisers to join us in an online get together. Come and talk to fellow Green Party supporters and members in the countryside.

Robin Bennett, our Henley candidate, will facilitate the conversation. He lives near Dorchester.

What is going on in your area? What do people in your village need? What campaigns should we all be working on?

We will be using the Zoom video conferencing system. You can join in on a computer or smart phone, or dial a London telephone number.

Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android: http://zoom.us/j/9299593080

RSVP for more details and to guarantee a place.
