Our Area

Central & South-East Somerset Green Party was established in September 2015, following an active General Election campaign in which Theo Simon won 9% of the vote in the Somerton and Frome constituency. ‘Central and SE Somerset’ stretches over 30 miles from Islemoor in the West to Penselwood in the East, and includes the towns of Curry Rivel, Langport, Somerton, Martock, Castle Cary, Bruton, Wincanton, Templecome, Henstridge and Milborne Port

We campaign on local, national and international issues and look to stand candidates in local and general elections.

Join the Green Party

As a member, you can be as active as you like - from armchair and online support to standing as a candidate for election. For more information, please contact Ewan Jones via sesomersetgreens@gmail.com.


Students: Join the Green Party for just £5 a year!

Volunteer

Even if you don't want to make the commitment of joining us, we always welcome supporters and volunteers. Volunteers can help with our campaigning work. Could you help deliver leaflets to your street, or go out with our campaign team and speak to local residents about their concerns?

Do you have 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.

Stand for Council

We have no Somerset County or South Somerset District Councillors, but our Somerton and Frome ‘sister party’ East Mendip successfully elected three Mendip District Councillors for Frome Wards in May 2015. We do have (to the best of our knowledge) five Town Councillors who are Green Party Members… two each in Bruton and Langport, and one in Castle Cary. All stand as Independents on non-party-political Town Councils.

We always need lots of enthusiastic, committed and hard-working candidates. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates. 

Candidates must be paid-up members of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies.
