Action day on 27 November with London Assembly member Zack Polanski

Come help us survey the residents of East Greenwich on Saturday 27 November. We will be joined for door knocking in the afternoon by our Green Party Assembly Member Zack Polanski. With a well-earned refreshment at a nearby venue afterwards.

The action days are an essential part of our plan to get the first ever Greens elected in Greenwich, which can make a real difference to the issues we care about. London has a fantastic opportunity to double or even triple its Green Councillors in May.

These elections will be won or lost depending on how many supporters we can persuade to join us on the ground. We have hundreds of doors to knock, and thousands of leaflets to deliver in each area before Christmas in our priority wards. Our brilliant, hard working candidates, and their small but mighty campaign teams, need extra boots on the ground to help them out.

If you can spare a couple of hours to help, RSVP here.
