Why donate to GSGP?
Since 2009, we’ve steadily and purposefully encroached on the Tory stronghold in our area – gaining seats on Glastonbury Town Council in 2011 and Glastonbury and Street Councils four years later – taking minority control of Glastonbury from the Conservatives in 2015!
Since then, we’ve consolidated our position, with two successive Green Mayors (Denise Michell, succeeded by Jon Cousins); using our strong position to push the Green agenda – becoming the second anti-fracking council in the UK; and the first UK council to ban chemical herbicides; introducing non-toxic weed control in all public spaces and council owned land.
In addition, we hosted the public launch of MEP Molly Scott Cato’s ‘The power to transform the South West’ at Glastonbury Town Hall; reinstated Glastonbury’s Fairtrade Town status; instigated Glastonbury’s Neighbourhood Plan; and we’re helping to co-ordinate the re-housing of Syrian refugees in Glastonbury and Street.
Jon Cousins stood as our Green candidate in the 2015 General Election, increasing our vote fourfold. In the Mendip District elections, he narrowly missing becoming Glastonbury’s first Green District Councillor by just three votes!
As Mayor of Glastonbury, Jon was actively working with the Police to foster a multi-agency approach to anti-social behaviour and drug dealing; collaborating with Glastonbury Festival and the BBC to promote Glastonbury town nationally. In addition, he has taken a leading role in the Last Bank Standing campaign (an attempt to stop the closure of all Glastonbury’s banks in 2016) and has recently helped to bring a new Nationwide Building Society branch to the town!
Following on from Jon Cousins, Cllr. Emma George was voted Mayor of Glastonbury for 2017/18 becoming our third successive Green Party Mayor.
By donating even a small amount, you can help GSGP continue to build stronger, safer, more resilient local communities; working for the Common Good in Glastonbury, Street, and the surrounding area.
