Our Area

Swale Green Party covers the area Faversham, Sittingbourne and Sheppey and of course the nearby villages. We cover the Parliamentary Constituencies of Faversham & Mid Kent (jointly with Maidstone Green Party) and Sittingbourne & Sheppey.

We campaign on local, national and international issues and we stand candidates in local and general elections.

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.

Stand for Council

On Kent County Council, Green Party councillor Martin Whybrow is doing a fantastic job of holding the Conservative-run council to account for cuts to socially necessary bus services, children’s centres, the voluntary sector and public health services.  Our MEP for the South East of England, Keith Taylor, is our strong voice in the European Parliament. And of course Green MP Caroline Lucas is showing what can be achieved by electing a principled, hard-working Green to Parliament.

On the more local level, 2017 was the first time Swale Green Party had contested all of the Swale seats on Kent County Council. In 2015 we stood more candidates for Swale Borough Council than ever before, and won our best ever results. We are not yet represented on Swale District Council or Faversham Town Council - 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.
