Eastern Green Party Regional Conference - Stowmarket - Saturday 16th November 2019

10 October 2019


This is not just our regular regional conference, it's also a chance to help leaflet in what is now our target constituency of Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket. If a General Election is declared by November 16th, we will still be having a meeting here, but we will be spending more time leafleting and campaigning and less time on the sessions.

Are you a new member looking to get more involved and help us win seats?

Are you a local party committee member looking for some fresh ideas, and meeting some new faces, and looking to see how you can get more people locally to help?

Are you a new councillor, or even one of long standing, looking to see how others have dealt with the aggressive opposition and the difficulty of getting things done?

Are your skills under-utilised in your local party and are you looking to fill some of the roles we need at a regional level - such as encouraging local parties to build capacity, getting more councillors elected, getting more coverage with the local and regional press and TV?

Then this is the conference for you.

Please make plans now to come along to this important meeting.
