Mary Franklin, candidate for Bloxham and Bodicote

When my family was young, I was active in Oxford in a recycling group, low carbon scheme and community orchard. I joined the Green Party as the only political party with realistic solutions to our current challenges. The overriding challenge is climate change, which we have to tackle locally as well as globally. I strongly oppose fracking, for example, which would endanger our soil and water quality as well as pursuing fossil fuels rather than alternative energy sources. Instead, I would work to promote greater energy efficiency through better insulation, better bus services and boosting the local economy.

There will be interesting talks and varied music throughout the day too. Family friendly.

    Tombola prizes:  small gifts – such as: pots of jam/pickle, nick-nacks, wine or chocolate, or anything else that would be a nice little prize.

    Books: your unwanted books for our ‘Magic Book Stall’

    Volunteers: if you could offer us an hour or two on the day, we have all sorts of jobs to do – from washing up, making drinks, serving food to being on the Green Party stall – it’s fun! If you would like to join in, please RSVP as above, or contact Jane Roberts If you’d like to contribute food for the café, it would be really helpful to know what you will bring.

    Help us run more events

    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.
