Kate Robinson, Green Party Candidate for Headington Hill & Northway

I have lived in Headington for 14 years, and I am now bringing up my young family here. I work as a librarian in Oxfordshire and am firmly committed to public services. I volunteer at New Marston Primary School, where my children attend. Here, I help with the school library and run the Gardening Club. I have also recently become involved in the Marston Community Gardening group, where we hope to get as many residents as possible growing fruit and vegetables to eat – for free!  

I passionately believe that local communities should come together to improve our local environment and work towards greater social justice – for everyone’s health and well-being.  I view Green Politics as the most positive and logical way to improve our local transport, our amenities, our green spaces and our housing.

If elected for Headington Hill & Northway, I would:

  • promote safer cycling and walking; especially for children, students and commuters – to reduce the traffic congestion and poor air-quality at peak times
  • campaign for more regular, more environmental and cheaper buses (including the 13 and 14 routes) to encourage people to use public transport
  • work with the Northway Community Centre to organise activities for all our residents, including Youth Groups, Sports, Health and Wellbeing, Edible Gardening, Swap Shops and Skill-Sharing, such as bike workshops.

I will work hard for you and the values of the Green Party to create a brighter future for the next generation.
