Welcome to the Salford Green Party website.
We are again offering a real Green alternative in the Local Council elections in May 2020, and in the Salford Mayoral elections of May 2020.
Salford Green Party has selected Wendy Olsen, Guy Otten and Chris Seed in BlackfriarsWard, David Jones in Broughton ward, and many other candidates for various wards: Bryan Blears, Ian Pattinson, Jennie Mellish, and Daniel Towers for the May 2020 elections. Our main aim at present is to get a group of Green Councillors.
We are a friendly party with local members spread out over Salford, from Cadishead and Barton in the west to Greengate, Blackfriars, Chapel Street, and Trinity in East Salford.
We have lots of young people and student members. They run the Young Greens locally. We often meet up at the DeliLama Cafe at Bexley Square.
Next pub-and-policies night: Third Wednesday of March/April at the King's Arms, 11 Bloom Street, Salford M3 6AN.
We meet regularly at the Gateway centres. We mostly have political strategy and an activity, such as making a video or having a policy debate. The Gateway centres have hot tea facilities and free computer terminals.
Next meeting: Weds., 4 March, 2020, Eccles Gateway (8 Barton Lane Eccles Salford M30 0TU). We start at 7 pm and finish 8.30 sharp.
Members may put a motion to the group but it has to be sent out to members a week ahead. Just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
* * Welcome to Salford Greens!
We have a special process to try to include candidates who identify as female. It's very inclusive. We are a friendly party with local members spread out over the whole range of Salford, from Cadishead and Irlam all the way to Greengate, Irwell river areas, Trinity, and Ordsall in East Salford.
We have a lot of student and youth members, who are active all year round. They like our Policies in Pubs nights. These are monthly on the 3rd Wednesday.
We have experience running in the local By-Election for the Council wards of Claremont and Kersal.
All our campaigning material is locally produced. Here is a local leaflet on food.
Upon joining, you are likely to get a phone call from us. You might hear from Lisa or Guy, our 2019 Membership Secretary.

We won that campaign, with Gina Dowding of Lancaster now standing in the European Parliament for Greens.
