ADD YOUR OWN CONTENT HERE. AN EXAMPLE FROM LEWISHAM GREEN PARTY IS SHOWN
Lewisham Green Party is one of the most active and successful local Green Parties in the country. We have six local councillors in Brockley and Ladywell. In the 2005 local election the Green vote in Lewisham Deptford was the second highest in the country. Lewisham Deptford is one of three national target constituencies for the Green Party and is well-positioned to elect one of the first Green MPs in the country, but we need your help to make it happen.
We always welcome volunteers to help with our campaigning work. Could you help deliver our newsletters to your street, or go out with our campaign team and speak to local residents about their concerns?
We are particularly keen to find more volunteers with 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.
One more Labour, Lib Dem or Conservative MP won't make a big difference, but a Green MP could make the world of difference.
Contact our constituency organiser Sue Luxton (020 8690 0658) for more information about ways you can get involved.
Get regular news and campaign alerts from the Greens by signing up for our regular e-mail updates from Lewisham Green Party. Messages are sent about once a month - slightly more often at election times. Sign up here. We're committed to keeping your email address safe, and won't pass it on to anyone else. Alternatively, join our Facebook group.
If you don't have much spare time at the moment, but would still like to help, why not make a donation? Your donation will help us stand more candidates for more elections, and help the party do more to support the work of our members across the country.
As a member, you can be as active as you like - from armchair and online support to standing as a candidate for election.
We meet on the second Monday of the month, 7.30pm, at Brockley Social Club, 240 Brockley Road, SE4. All members and supporters welcome.
The Green Party currently has 6 councillors in Lewisham and we are aiming to double this at the next local elections in May 2010, so we need lots of enthusiastic, committed and hard-working candidates. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates.
Lewisham Green Party plans to call for nominations in the summer and select its target ward candidates in September 2009, ready for the 2010 elections. Candidates must be paid-up members of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies.
We are holding a special event on February 7th 2009 for anyone thinking of putting themselves forward as a candidate. This event is open to all members and supporters of Lewisham Green Party and will be an opportunity for potential candidates to hear from current councillors about their work and to ask them questions, as well as to find out how you can make a difference as a Green councillor and learn more about what's involved in an election campaign

Lewisham Green Drinks is on the first Monday of every month from 7pm onwards at Mr Lawrence Wine Bar, 389 Brockley Road, Crofton Park. 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!
