Get Involved

The Green Party currently has 6 councillors at Mid Suffolk DC, 2 at Suffolk County Council and a growing number of Town and Parish Councillors. We are aiming to increase this at the 2017 County Elections, so we need lots of enthusiastic, committed and hard-working candidates. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates.

Candidates should be paid-up members of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies.

For further details please contact John Matthissen on 01449 771742

Volunteers planting trees


We always welcome volunteers to help with our campaigning work. Could you help deliver our newsletters to your street, or go out with our campaign team and speak to local residents about their concerns?

We are particularly keen to find more volunteers with fundraising experience or press, research and administrative skills. We also run tree planting schemes and community litter picking in the autumn and spring.

Whatever your level of experience and however much or little time you can give, we would love to hear from you.

Contact our constituency organiser John Matthissen
