New stretch target

Reaching our target will let us pay for 2 candidate General Election deposits, a Freepost mailing to every voter and detailed leaflets telling voters about our policies, along with posters, banners and Green Party rosettes. Extra money will help us pay for more leaflets, posters, banners and pop-up stands to use on our street stalls, to help us get the message out to more voters! We'll also use it to boost social media posts to reach more people. 


We're Becky and Rob, and we're running for Parliament as your Green Party candidates in Thanet. 

Becky Wing (South Thanet): "I’ve lived in Ramsgate since 2010. I work with Charlton Athletic Community Trust supporting young people across Thanet.

As a working-class child I was able to access free education to become a teacher, so I have a passion for education & training: it empowers & improves life chances.

In May I was elected as one of three new Green Councillors in Thanet (a former UKIP-controlled Council). I believe I have the skills, energy and commitment to help drive change in South Thanet. "  

Rob Edwards (North Thanet): "I’ve lived in North Thanet all my life - studied in its education system, worked in its businesses, talked with its residents. I work as a sports centre manager, but I’ve also worked at Westgate’s Carlton Cinema, in recruitment and as a personal trainer.  

I’m standing because I’m disillusioned with old-school politics. Politics should be about ordinary people, not the privileged few. If we champion equality and embrace the potential of green technologies to support and develop our businesses, we can all prosper. 

I’m young, hungry and willing to work immensely hard to change North Thanet for the better." 

About us: We're a small Green Party branch, but we've doubled our numbers in the last six months. Becky is one of three new Green Councillors elected in May who are really making a difference locally. With our kinder way of doing politics and our vibrant Green manifesto, we have a lot to offer at the General Election in December!

Our election plans: With your support we'll be sending a leaflet to every single voter and campaigning hard to get Green Party policy at the forefront of voters' minds. Help us get our message out!

Our manifesto: Thanet Green Party is campaigning to reverse the cuts and fight for fairer funding for coastal communities, protect our services and massively increase green jobs and training, which have the potential to do so much for Thanet and the UK.
