Bridport Greens

Bridport Green Group meet around once a month. Our next meeting is Monday 21st August, 7.30pm. Please contact us for the details of the venue. Our aim is to support the work of our town councillors, Kelvin Clayton and Julian Jones, to campaign on local issues and get more elected representatives.

Issues we have campaigned on are: keeping the Youth Centre open, encouraging local employers to pay a living wage, and improving the town centre by pedestrianising the top part of South Street.

If you would like to get involved please email    kelvin.clayton@icloud.com     or  kelvin.clayton@greenparty.org.uk

Elected in May 2015, they have already made an impact: the council is now committed to helping Bridport become the first Living Wage Town. And they also succeeded in passing a motion calling on the UK government to retain the Human Rights Act.

Committe representation is as follows:

Environment and Social Well Being: Kelvin and Julian
