What we are for

We invite you to join us in working for justice, equality and protection of the natural resources that sustain us, to turn Calderdale into a fairer, greener place to live and work.

We will achieve this by working for:

  • a fair shares economy
  • a safe climate and environment
  • a properly funded, publicly owned, run and provided NHS and other public services

Working together for a fairer, greener future

Calderdale Green Party is one of the local parties within the Green Party of England and Wales. We aim to work for a just, equitable and sustainable community in Calderdale. We focus our efforts through the electoral system, and through direct action and campaigns outside the formal political system.

The current situation

Calderdale Green Party has grown rapidly and in 2015 this meant we were able, for the first time, to stand a candidate for every seat in the Calderdale Council elections.

We have three town councillors: Elizabeth King on Hebden Royd Town Council and Penny Marrington and Dave Wardell on Todmorden Town Council.

We are working on a Target to Win strategy and over the summer will be asking members to help with this task. For more info and to get involved please contact
