A month in the life of a Green Party campaigner -- June

Council meetings -- 2
Community meetings and events -- 11
Council enquiries and requests for repairs -- 4

Council meetings
I attended the Traffic Management Advisory Panel to get some action on the dire parking situation in Newtown. I also went along to the Green City Forum -- which was very interesting -- to find out more about plans for Palmer Park.

Community meetings and work
It has been a busy month with lots of community events. Highlights included presenting certificates at the volunteer's party, the bike week critical mass organised by the Reading Cycle Campaign and a talk on Christianity and Islam at the Warehouse.

Residents' enquiries and requests for repairs
During the election period we picked up a few requests for action around noise and other issues.

The campaign that I have been putting most effort into recently is the one to Reopen the Jolly Anglers pub. I am on the events team and we are organising an awareness raising event this Sunday as part of the Big Lunch.

We have also been going door to door with the Palmer Park consultation to ensure people have heard about it and get it back to the Council in time.
