Forest Row Green posters

The BBC came to Forest Row on Saturday to find out if - in a Conservative-dominated District - one village is about to turn Green.

Patricia Patterson-Vanegas and Amelia Womack meet BBCBen Weisz interviewed Patricia Patterson-Vanegas, our brilliant candidate, and Amelia Womack, Deputy Leader of the Green Party, and then he went out with our local activists to find out what people were saying on the doorstep. Let's just say we came home on Saturday with a warm feeling.

Listen to the interview here to hear what he found (starts 35 minutes in).

And wherever you are, vote Green on Thursday 2 May - your vote makes a difference. Your voice is important.

Vote Georgia Taylor for Parliament - 12 Dec 2019

Voting Green and 'tactical' voting in Wealden

Voting LibDem or Labour won’t unseat Nus Ghani, no matter what they say.

Voting Green sends a strong message to the new government: Green voters demand significant change on climate and social justice.

Voting Green is a clear vote for remaining in Europe.

We encourage everyone to vote for the party that best represents their values. 

Why didn't the Greens stand down in Wealden?

A Unite to Remain candidate is only standing in constituencies where a Remain candidate has a good chance of beating a Leave candidate.  

The Unite to Remain strategy gives the Green Party significantly more chance of electing more Green MPs. 

In Wealden, the combined votes of all opposition parties won’t unseat Nus Ghani. 

Wealden Green Party is a successful party. We have increased our share of the vote in most recent elections and plan to do so again.
