Barnet Green Party members are hard at work all year round delivering leaflets, sweating over press releases, and campaigning on local issues, including highlighting the serious air pollution problem in our borough. This is work that should produce results, but the efforts of our volunteers and the Green Party’s policies on Social and Environmental Justice aren’t enough on their own, we also need cash to deliver our messages effectively.
It costs £20 to print 100 Green Party window posters, £200 to print a ward newsletter, or £1,000 to rent a shop for the election period. For the air pollution monitoring campaign in the first quarter of 2016, which has received great publicity in the local press, we spent over £400 on buying monitoring equipment and having the results analysed by a recognized laboratory. All the leg work involved in putting up the monitoring equipment in many different locations across the borough, and taking it down a month later, was done by hard-working volunteers in their own time.
