Andrew Haywood wants to volunteer 2018-01-06 17:48:19 +0000
Would you like to help welcome newly-joined members into your area? Not everyone feels confident enough to immediately come to a big meeting or join in a campaign team. So we are looking for members who can talk to them about local issues and the things we are doing as a party.
If you are willing to be a local link person who will make that extra bit of effort to get to know new local members, please let me know and I will ensure you are provided with details of people who join in your area. In cities this area might be a few streets, in the countryside a village. I will divide up the areas once all the volunteers have signed up. Let me know which area you would like to handle.
How you welcome new members and supporters is up to you. Below are some suggestions. Tick the ones that you think might work in your area. Some are more suited to a rural village, other in towns. Or you may have better ideas.Become a volunteer

We all want where we live to feel like home, to feel safe and secure. That’s why the Greens are making better, affordable housing a top priority.
Oxford has the least affordable housing in the UK. Costs in other parts of the County are also rising inexorably.
The housing crisis is affecting everyone; tenants are being ripped off by dodgy landlords, homelessness is on the increase and prospective owners are being priced out of the area. At the same time, funding for those in housing need is being cut.
Meanwhile, the super rich are speculating on housing and profiteering at our expense.
Many also suffer in cold and mouldy properties facing rising energy bills and soaring rents.
- Abolish the cruel and unfair bedroom tax
- Building 500,000 new Council homes
- Cap rents and introduce longer tenancies to provide greater protection for renters
- An end to £7bn of tax breaks for landlords
- Better insulated, energy efficient homes
Do you support Green policies to provide more affordable housing?

Welcome to an Oxfordshire Green Party event. It costs us money to put on events. We have to pay for room hire, speakers' expenses and publicity.
- £3 pays for tea, coffee and biscuits for a day.
- £10 pays for an hour's room hire.
- £25 pays for hiring an IT suite for an hour.
- £50 pays for a return train ticket from Brighton to Oxford.
Please help us defray these costs by making a small donation, so that we can run more events.Donate
Oxford is now the most unaffordable place to live in the UK. Houses cost more than 11 times average wages. The country and Oxford's council have a housing crisis on their hands.
Too often, people paying rent get poor service from rogue agencies and landlords. Greens want to take action to drive up standards in rented housing and to tackle the burden of rent.
We believe that access to housing is a human right—the council must do more to meet the housing needs of people in Oxford. Greens support increasing the number of council and social homes available to those who need them.
No council houses have been completed in the last year in Oxford. So when suitable houses become available on the local market, Oxford City Council should purchase them to increase the council housing stock.27 signatures
We demand that Oxford City Council use some of the £10m it has set aside to buy properties for use as Council housing to purchase the Crown House Club on the corner of Crown Street and St Mary’s Road in East Oxford. The Council could then provide 4 flats for immediate rent and a potential additional 5 flats for rent once the non-residential parts of the building are converted for residential use.
We believe the £1m price tag for the Crown House Club, and the potential to create up to 9 Council housing units in an area of housing need, presents excellent value for money for the City Council. With a constant decline in social housing available in the city, it would be a travesty to pass on such a good opportunity to increase the Council's housing stock.

We must oppose Conservative plans to destroy public services. People need to say NO to Austerity and YES to Welfare.”
