In the County Council elections 325 Waltham Abbey residents,  most of whom have never met me, voted for the Green Party and I to represent them on Essex  County Council. That’s a 356% increase on the 89 votes we won in 2013 and shows that there is space for green policies in Waltham Abbey.

Waltham Abbey Green Drinks – Thurs 27th April – The Crown

Meet your Greens!

With the local plan, the neighbourhood plan, parking problems and cuts to bus services, youth services and care services there’s a lot going on in Waltham Abbey.

But there’s still always time to spend a relaxing evening in good company!

We’re going to meet for a chat and some socialising at The Crown on Thursday 27th, from 7pm, to chew the fat.

Join us!

It’s an informal meeting of like-minded people – there are more of us in Waltham Abbey than you might think.

After the Green Drinks why not stick around for The Crown’s quiz at nine?
