Green Party Leader Visit

14 November 2014

The Leader of the Green Party paid a visit to the district in November 2014. Party leader for England and Wales Natalie Bennett visited Snitterfield Primary School where she discussed the importance of green thinking with youngsters from the schools eco group.

She also called in to praise the achievements of Snitterfield Actioning Climate Change (SACC) group, which was recently crowned Energy Purchase Project of the Year at the UK community energy awards.

That same evening the politician spoke to a crowd of more than 100 people at the Stratford Arts House. Speaking about her visit she said “In places like Stratford and Snitterfield, we need to invest in the economy we’re going to have for the next three to four decades. We need investment in rural regeneration, renewable energy projects, and in energy efficiency. The Green Party strongly supports community energy projects like SACC that will insulate us from rising fossil fuel prices.”
