STROUD District Green Party launched their election campaign on Saturday with a flash mob in the town centre.

Dozens of party members and supporters dressed in green descended outside the Subscription Rooms on Saturday for the event - many of whom were carrying 'Love Stroud' placards.

The flash mob was the idea of Young Green, Sahaya James.

"I wanted to do something that would be noticeable and that would show politics as a positive force for change at a local level, while still celebrating Stroud,” said Sahaya.

"As a party we are inspired by the Stroud district and we hope in turn to inspire more local people to engage with politics."

Brian Nimblette, who will be running as a Green candidate for Cainscross in the local elections next month, said: “I strongly believe that local councils can make a positive contribution to community life, in all sort of ways, and that is why I want to become a councillor and play my part in that work.”

Green candidates will be standing in all of the Stroud district’s contested wards on Thursday, May 22.

Also because it is about time the media 1. recognised the importance and relevance of the Green Party agenda for our local communities and wider society and 2. gave people the chance to understand the positive options available to them which will actually improve their lives.
