They told us how they got interested and elected and then their experiences as local councillors. Take a look at the videos. Would you like to stand for election? Or could you assist a councillor with the wonderful work they are doing?

Do you want to see what your Green councillors (and others) are doing? Council meetings are held in public. You can attend them, either in the public gallery or watch a live stream of the meeting.
Learn about what councillors do and then think about how you could help our Green councillors or become one yourself.
Here are the July full council meetings:
Councils publish agendas and online viewing links only a week before each meeting.
If you are interested in taking notes of a meeting, or summarising some of the papers, that will help our Green councillors. If so, sign up for the shift at the time you are going. We are looking for volunteers to help our Green councillors.
Come and meet fellow Green Party members from across South East England. There will be a day of online reflections, success stories and training sessions (for Green Party members only).
In the evening our own Karl Kwiatowski will be hosting a quiz, open to all.
THE MORNING 11.00am-1.00pm
Oxfordshire Greens are getting together for a drink and catch up, at a locally run pub, 'The Up in Arms', in Marston.
We have a table booked - outside but under cover - so we will be able to keep socially distanced and keep each other as safe as possible.
Come along, bring your friends and chat with like-minded people.
