    Q: Do you agree that considerate cycling should be allowed in Florence Park with clear signage instead of the current unclear situation?
    A: Yes

    Florence Park Cycling

    Many people don’t realise that currently cycling is prohibited in Florence Park (except for ‘authorised cycling ‘– unspecified). Do have a look at the small note at the bottom of the big park notice boards.

    Friends of Florence Park recently asked on line that cyclists be aware of other users and their needs and not behave selfishly. They are not proposing that cycling should be forbidden just that cyclists pay attention to pedestrians.

    What do you think?

    Phone for the Green Party

    You can help us campaign to win in Oxfordshire by telephoning people.

    For this General Election we need people to:

    • Invite supporters who have offered to help to come to action days.
    • Call voters in places we cannot reach, such as rural villages and blocks of flats, to find out whether they might vote green.

    and in addition, after the General Election we also need people to: 

    • Talk to new members to find out what they would like to do.
    • Ask for regular donations so we can build the party and extend our campaigns.

    If you would like to help, even if only for 30 min. each week, please fill in these forms. There are two forms.

    1. The one at the top with fields to fill in will sign you up to use our virtual call centre.
    2. The one at the bottom is for you to tell us how you can help, either getting together with a group of friends in someone's house to call one evening (a phone bank) or calling from home using our virtual call centre.

    Tell us what skills you can use to help us win.

    When you have volunteered to help the Oxfordshire Green Party, please tell us something about your skills.

    For some tasks, we need specialist skills, hence this long list.

    But most tasks anyone can do, given the training we provide.

    Help us to create a Greener Parliament!

    Help us fight the climate crisis. Let's get more Greens elected

    We need better MPs, ones that don't just pay lip service to the climate crisis. Right now you can help our General Election candidates reach thousands of voters before 12 December.

    Oxfordshire Green Party is campaigning for a Green New Deal by getting more Green MPs. Already our elected Green councillors have got local councils to divest from fossil fuels, declare a climate emergency, improve cycling facilities and require 50% social housing in new developments.

    We don't have much money, but we do have thousands of members and supporters in Oxfordshire. Will you help make a difference? Please sign up below to volunteer in any way you can. Or if you would like to speak to someone about it, please phone Kate Robinson on 07582 903996 to find how you can help, at a time that suits you.

    THANK YOU!

    Ever thought of standing for election?

    This is a call for candidates to stand for the Green Party at the 2020 elections to councils in Oxfordshire.

    We need more Green councillors in Oxfordshire. Could you follow in the footsteps of our Green Party councillors in Oxford, and stand for election? You could improve the quality of our councils by representing the people and views that the governing parties ignore.

    Act now

    If you are at all interested in standing as a candidate, or helping organise a campaign for a candidate, please complete the form below, and the Elections Committee will get back to you with more details.

    If you want any more information on what is involved in standing as candidate, please contact the Elections Co-ordinator, David Newman.

    We are looking for both target candidates, who will work hard to win in May 2020, and non-target candidates who need to do as little as getting their name on the ballot paper so that people can vote everywhere for a Green Party candidate.
