Dartford and Gravesham Greens are now an official local branch of the UK Green Party.
The Kent Green Party, of which the Dartford and Gravesham Greens were previously associated, was dissolved recently due to an increase in membership numbers that made management of the group difficult. In response, the branches of the KGP have been setting themselves up as independent local parties or joining with a neighbouring branch for the same end. The Dartford and Gravesham AGM, held on Sunday 25th October, followed this trend to formally establish the local branch.
Apart from official business those at the meeting discussed attending the People’s March for Climate, Justice and Jobs, to be held in London on November 29th. Local Green Party members will be gathering together to boost the Green presence at the March. Anyone wanting to join members in travelling up to London should look to the Gravesham Green Party Facebook page for details.
