No breakthroughs for South Cambs Greens this time, but an amazing election result for the Lib Dems who swept the Conservatives aside to take overall control of the District Council. Our role as Greens now will be to make sure that they keep to their manifesto commitments of a sustainable local plan, affordable housing, empowering communities and putting people first, to name but a few. The Green vote held up well and it is to our credit that we were able to field so many candidates, deliver over 20,000 leaflets and knock on so many doors. So, thank you to all those that took part in the campaign. And a big congratulations to our sister party in Peterborough, who managed to get their first Green councillor, Julie Howell, elected!
Our next meeting is really going to be a bit different: a bring and share picnic followed by a bat walk! It will be on 22nd July at Guilden Gate, Bassingbourn. Details including precice times to follow. Our AGM is in September, once again date and time to follow.
There is an Eastern Region Green Party meeting on 9th June in Stowmarket. We are hoping to organise a car share. If you're interested in going, would like a lift or would be happy to offer one, then please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a look at the 'campaigns' page to see what else we are up to. Some of our members are playing a role in opposing Amey Cespa's plans for a waste incinerator at Waterbeach - to find out more, have a look at the web page of Cambridge Without Incineration.
