Andrew Prosser Green Party Candidate for Witney North in the 2021 District Council Elections and Witney North & East  in the 2021 County Elections
Helen Gavin Andrew Prosser Green Party Candidate for Eynsham  & Cassington in the 2021 District Council Elections and Eynsham  & Cassington in the 2021 County Elections
After an exceptional period of elections both locally and nationally in 2019, all local elections for 2020 have been postponed until May 6th 2021. We had active campaigns running in Witney North and Eynsham where we were confident of winning at least one ward which would have given us our first Green District Councillor for a very long time. However, the continuing sad saga of the Covid-19 pandemic eliminated that opportunity and we moved our sights onto the upcoming 2021 local elections.
Having postponed the 2020 District and Town/Parish council elections means that we will be in the very unusual situation in May 2021 of fighting both district council and county council elections alongside each other. In those elections there will be:
We already have nominations for most of the County and District Council seats but are always looking for potential candidates who would seriously like to serve their community as a Green Councillor.  If you are interested in putting your name forward please contact the Branch Chair, Barry Wheatley As and when candidates are selected by the Branch or the Oxfordshire Green Party we will post them on our Candidates page.
 
Most of the parish and town council seats are apolitical and councillors don't declare their political allegiance, but they are good grounding for anyone wanting to serve their local community and can be a springboard to District and County level elections. We would encourage all Green Party Members and supporters to seriously consider whether they could contribute to their local town or parish council.  With the prospect of a Unitary Council for Oxfordshire on the horizon, the experience from other parts of England is that Town and Parish Councils become more important. 
  
2021 offers an opportunity to get the green voice heard at all levels of local government.  In both Witney and Charlbury town councils we have already seen what a difference it makes having a Green in the council chamber. 
 
Given our limited financial resources we will be heavily dependant upon volunteers assisting the development of our campaign over the next months. If you can help either with time, resources and/or skills, such as generating content for newsletters and social media please contact our Deputy Chair, Frances Mortimer 
 
Alternatively, if you would like to help sponsor our campaign please visit our donation page. Even the smallest donation will make a difference. We rely entirely on your donations and membership to campaign in West Oxfordshire. Unlike other parties we do not receive funds from corporations, non-doms, trade unions or such likes. Your personal donation is our only source of income. Even the smallest donation will be helping to make a big difference.
