Ben Foley

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.

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.

Adrian Spurrell

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.
