Thanet Green Party is vibrant, active force in Thanet local issues. The party is made up of local people who care about Thanet and want something new and fresh for Thanet people and business. Tired of the 2 party monopoly of the isle that has brought so much disrepute both locally and nationally, the Thanet Green Party wants a new sort of politics; one that provides a positive vision for Thanet rather than factional in-fighting, vested interest deals and abusive behaviour by councillors.
Thanet Green Party sees itself fighting for the best interests of Thanet people and Thanet business. We want a fairer, more progressive and inclusive Thanet that everyone can be proud of.
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 web design, press, research and administrative skills. Whatever your level of experience and however much or little time you can give, we would love to hear from you.
One more Labour, Lib Dem or Conservative councillor won't make a big difference, but a Green councillor could make the world of difference.
Contact us for more information about ways you can get involved.

We meet on the first Thursday of alternate months at 7.30pm at the Ravensgate Arms in Ramsgate. Although this is a members' meeting, we welcome anyone with an interest, but would appreciate you contacting us first, by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Green Party ran 13 council candidates and two Prospective Parliamentary Candidates in May 2015 elections. We had 4 candidates in Thanet's 5 Divisions for the Kent County Council elections in May 2017, and intend to contest more elections in future. To do so, we need lots of enthusiastic, committed people to join us to fight these elections and make a real difference in local politics!
