Rugby Green Party spokesperson Roy Sandison says “The day could not have gone any better”.
“ Natalie was able to tour the town centre with local members pointing out the damage of the out of town shopping policy being promoted by the Tory Council at the expense of our town centre.”
“Natalie had an exciting visit to Works 4 Me -a ground breaking Employment, Art and Recycling enterprise for people with Learning difficulties in Albert Street including taking questions from people with Learning Difficulties about how the Green Party is able to support them”.
“Natalie was quizzed on Green ideas by school students at Paddox School including meeting members of their Eco-Council”
“Natalie met representatives from the Newbold Chapel Cafe using ‘waste food’ to tackle poverty in their community. Natalie shared ideas about how other similar projects were gaining funds and why the Government needed to change its policies.”
“And finally finishing off the day with a packed public meeting of local people taking questions and hearing about our policies on the EU, Workers Rights, Opposing privatisation of the NHS, Support for the Junior Doctors Strikes and tackling climate change.”
“It was a really good visit and Natalie was impressed by how local people were coming together to promote enterprise and defend our community” says Roy
