Every year the Elder Stubbs Festival is a wonderful, unusual festival in these gorgeous allotments. A little haven within Oxford City. It is a fundraiser for the charity Restore - and for many years Oxford East Greens have held a stall there. Why not join in for a few hours? It is a really enjoyable day, and you meet so many like-minded people.
At the stall we introduce people to the Green Party, get them to sign petitions or sign up to help and raise funds for our election campaigns.
If you can spare a few hours - between 10.30 and 5.30pm, sign up for a shift and contact Bob Waugh or Alison Williams.
In the last few months, 1000s of members have joined the Green Party - a sign of how every day, more people are growing tired of our broken political system, and calling for something new!
In Oxford, while living costs continue to soar, and social inequalities are rife, our community also deserves new voices to shake up our City Council. We need fresh ideas, radical change, and councillors that will never compromise on their principles.
This is why we're excited to be supporting a whole host of Green Party election campaigns this year in the run up to Oxfordshire's May 2020 local elections. We'll be supporting candidates all across the city, including several Young Greens who have an incredible chance of winning!

The Witney North by-election for Witney North town council is happening on Thursday 29th August.
If you can help Brigitte Hickman - longtime green campaigner and wonderful local person - then please do!
A by-election on August 29th means we have a chance to get a second Green elected to Witney Town Council. Witney North is our target ward for the District Council elections next May, so it is really important that we strengthen our base.
Brigitte Hickman, a former teacher and a founder and director of the Windrush Bike Project, has campaigned actively on many local issues in the 25 years that she has lived in the ward. When elected, she will become the second Green Party town councillor in Witney, joining Andrew Prosser, who was elected in May with the largest share of the vote.
The main action day is Saturday 24th August - but if you can help another time to get in touch. Sign up for one or more shifts below or contact Frances Mortimer to let her know when you can help.

We need lots of helpers for the Witney North by-election on 29 August 2019. When we have 2 Green town councillors, we can win a West Oxfordshire councillor in May.
We need people to:
- Sit outside polling stations smiling at voters and writing down voter numbers (telling).
- Walk or cycle around with Green Party banners (so everyone is reminded that there is an election where they can vote Green).
- Visit green voters to remind them to get to their polling station.
- Observe the count in the evening.
When you RSVP below, you will then be sent to a page to indicate your preferences in how you can help. Please complete that page.
If you want to come to the count, tell Frances Mortimer <email@example.com> before 1200 on Thursday 22 August.
We’ll be leafletting in the Osney and St Thomas area. Join us at 10.30am at the West Oxford Community Centre, Botley Road, OX2 0BT. If that time doesn't suit you, feel free to contact Ben Saward and we’ll get leaflets to you for another time.
Join us for the Oxfordshire Green Party gathering, a day of inspiring talks, training and Green Action!
We're holding the gathering in Bicester this year, where Young Green Party member Robert Nixon became our first Bicester Town councillor this May. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet other Greens, gain some political campaigning experience.
Robert is already building a reputation as a community activist that gets things done. Just months after his election Robert has been tackling litter, challenging unpopular planning proposals, supporting the Bicester foodbank and helping to start a “Library of Things” in the town. Help us get the message out about these successes in Bicester East!
