Council budget and the vulnerable, Rape Support Centre and more all in Reading Green News

Hello all,

With the Council budget recently – the most important Council meeting of the year – it has been a busy and stressful time. We did our best to stand up for vulnerable people, and have been working hard in other areas too.

Also, we have had the national Green Party conference recently. See here for Green Party leader Natalie Bennett opening the conference.

Here is a brief update on what Reading Green Party has up to recently:

Update on the current forest of estate agent boards

Everyone should enjoy the same marriage rights

Green Deal is an underfunded deal

Next stage in £6 million Bulmershe school building programme

Greens move budget amendment to protect vulnerable people

Rape Support Centre to open in Reading

And the events which are coming up:

New Year meal, Tuesday, March 19, 7:30 PM and the Spice Oven in Caversham. Everyone welcome to this social, sitdown, buffet meal, but please confirm your attendance in advance.

Reading Green Drinks, tonight, Tuesday, March 5, 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM, at the Global Cafe. I will be there from 7 PM. This is a very informal drop-in affair.

If you've got any feedback, ideas or want to get more involved please get in touch.

Please feel free to forward this on to other interested people and as always, for more recent news from the Green Party, to join us, or to find out more about our policies, go to:


Best wishes

Rob White, Melanie Eastwood and Jamie Whitham

Green Party councillors
