Wales Green Party Big Day Out in Carno
Sat 8 April 2017, 10:15 – 17:00 BST
Why come and join us now?
We'd love you to join us at this exciting time for Montgomeryshire Green Party. We're focusing all our efforts to get Powys' first Green Party councillor elected on May 4th, and we need your help! We've got a really strong candidate and a great team, and we're getting some fantastic support from the residents of Caersws, Carno and the surrounding villages, where we are hoping to get Pippa Pemberton elected to Powys County Council.
Council elections in Wales usually only happen once every 4 years, and this time round we haven't had one since 2012. So this is the first time in 5 years that people have had the chance to vote to change the tired and creaking Powys County Council.
Everyone is welcome, from everywhere. And you don't have to be a Green Party member, just have an interest in Green politics and issues. We would love to meet some new people, and hope you will come and join us for all, or part, of the day.
What are we doing on the day?
We are all meeting at Caersws Train Station at 10:15am (to meet the train from Shrewsbury direction) and 10:34 (to meet the train from Aberystwyth direction). This way, those arriving in cars can give lifts to Carno, to those arriving on the train. In fact, the lack of a train station at Carno is one of the key local issues!
We will be running a 'buddy-up' system for the day. This way, more experienced activists can accompany less experienced activists, and we can all 'learn on the job' and find out how much fun it is to talk to people about politics!
If the weather is fine we will stop for a bring and share picnic lunch. If it's not fine, then we will go to the wonderful new tea rooms at the Buck in Caersws. Be warned, they do dangerously fantastic cakes! Then after lunch, those that want to can carry on for another couple of hours, before catching one of the regular trains home.
We'll take the day at your pace, and do what you're happy with.
What if I can't come on the 8th, but would like to come another time?
Don't worry, we're out campaigning every weekend, handing out leafets and talking to people about the elections. Just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can let you know how you can come and join us on another day!
