Rosie Pearson

Since 1998, she has lived with her two daughters at Asthall Manor, near Burford, and has been trying to justify the large carbon footprint of the house by filling it with interesting and life-enhancing events, including the celebrated exhibition of sculpture in stone, ‘Onform’.

Rosie has been a member of the Green Party for six years. An optimist by nature, she cannot believe that human beings cannot find a more generous and harmonious way to live on the earth than that which is currently considered normal. She is inspired by a vision of a future which is not only cleaner and fairer, but also happier, less stressful, and more creative.

    How you can help us on election day

    Let us know how you can best help on election day, 2 May 2019. Tasks include:

    1. Reminding people to vote:
      • Knocking on the doors of people who said they will vote Green (“knocking up”).
      • Telephoning people who said they would vote green.
    2. Helping in a committee room.
    3. Giving lifts to voters with mobility difficulties who are otherwise unable to travel their polling station
    4. Taking voter numbers at polling stations (“telling”)—many voters don’t make up their minds until they are in the polling booth. A Green rosette and a welcoming face can help persuade them. Key times include 7am-9.30am, and 5pm-8pm.
    5. Tallying the votes at the count, so we know where in the county there are more Green voters.

    Please tick the ways you can help below, and where you can help, as there are elections in 4 councils this year.
