Our Area

Otley and Yeadon Green Party covers the area of the Otley and Yeadon Ward situated in the Leeds North-West Constituency.


We campaign on local, national and international issues and are standing candidates in local and general elections.

Join the Green Party

As a member, you can be as active as you like - from armchair and online support to standing as a candidate for election. For more information, please contact Cath Harrison (Secretary/ Local Party Contact) on contactoygp@yahoo.co.uk

 

Volunteer

Even if you don't want to make the commitment of joining us, we always welcome supporters and volunteers. Volunteers can help with our campaigning work. Could you help deliver leaflets to your street, or go out with our campaign team and speak to local residents about their concerns?

Do you have fundraising experience or web design, press, research and administrative skills?  Whatever your level of experience and however much or little time you can give, we would love to hear from you.

Donate

Stand for Council

Although we have stood in the area in the last few years we have no Green Party councillors on the local Borough, District or County Councils yet.  But we aim to change this.  

So we need lots of enthusiastic, committed and hard-working candidates. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates. 

Candidates must be paid-up members of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies.

Leeds Green Drinks

Green Drinks is a great way to meet new people, catch up with friends or just hang out with people who also want to contribute in whatever way to a more sustainable society.

It's not party political - anyone with an interest in green issues is welcome, but there are normally a few Green Party members there, so do come along and meet us!

Leeds Green Drinks is held  the fourth Tuesday of every month http://www.greendrinks.org/Yorkshire/Leeds

Vote for Policies

Caroline Lucas, in a letter to the Guardian, said "Out of 332,237 people surveyed in the Vote for Policies survey before the last election ... over 24% – more than any other party – chose Green policies. The last time people had a chance to vote in elections under proportional representation – the Euro elections of 2009 – the Greens won over a million votes, demonstrating again the growing support for action on the Green agenda."

Visit the website at Vote for Policies and take the survey yourself.  Compare policies from six UK political parties on a range of key issues.  After you have chosen the policies you agree with, you are shown which parties they belong to.
