Position to be filled
Enquirer Contact (Luton)
Cllr Lucy Bywater
Councillor Bedford Borough Council, Press and Campaigns Officer.
Cllr Ben Foley
Councillor Bedford Borough Council, Groups Support Officer, Equalities Coordinator, (Job Share) Deputy Internal Returning Officer and Coordinator (Luton)
Ben works tirelessly for both the Castle Ward community and the Green Party working at the local and regional level. Ben designs the ward leaflets and then delivers a good quantity of them often very late at night. The local party would truly be lost without him.
Cllr Susan Clinch
Town Councillor (Ampthill), Coordinator (Central Bedfordshire)
Susan is what some people would refer to a tree hugging warrior. She is very much an environmental campaginer and supports members from the liberation groups to fulfil a worthwhile role within the party.
Internal Returning Officer, Nominating Officer (Bedford)
Richard does a great job when it comes to election time both interrnally and externally. At the local elections Richard coordinated the Castle ward election day campaign. Richard must have been ecstatic when the results of the 2019 election came through and knowing that his hard work had paid off.
Nominating Officer (Luton)
Simon joined the party in 2007. Has held Coordinator and nominating roles in the past. Due business commitments Simon's main role takes place during elections.
Secretay (Luton & Bedfordshire), Equalities Coordinator (Job Share),
I have lived in Houghton Regis since 2009 and have always been concerned about the environment, sustainability, and social justice, and joined the Green Party in 2013 at a street stall petition to nationalise the railways. I have stood as a paper candidate in local elections in Dunstable and Houghton Regis. In March 2021 I retired from a career social work and now have time to be involved local campaigns.
Membership Secretary (Luton & Bedfordshire)
Dominic is a passionate campaigner and green entrepreneur, as well as being a local resident and father of three. Since studying for an environmental science degree he has worked as a sustainability campaigner, founded a community bike recycling workshop, and run his own consultancy advising local authorities, government and business on how to cut emissions from transport.
Coordinator (Bedford) and Treasurer (Luton & Bedfordshire)
Adrian believes politics in the UK has been moribund for years, fixated on economics not social and environmental wellbeing and ignoring the very real challenges we are facing. Challenges whose impact is being felt through indicators such as growing mental health issues, a struggling health system and the lack of a truly representative voting system.
He runs his own leadership and organisation development consultancy, lives in Kempston and is single with four grown up children and much to his own amazement 4 grandchildren.
