We try to hold regular monthly meetings, either in the form of General Meetings - which all Green Party members and supporters are usually free to attend - or in the form of Executive Meetings (see below). We aim to hold these in a different location from month-to-month, to try and afford as many of our members an opportunity to attend as possible.
The elected officers are obliged to meet at least every other month to ensure ongoing operations and conduct planning as appropriate. Other local Green Party members are most welcome to attend these meetings if they wish. The next Executive Meeting is as follows:
We also have regular Campaign Meetings where we organise and plan local activity in relation to particular campaigns - contact one of our local Officers if you would like to know more or come along.
Because South Shropshire is such a geographically spread area (~50 miles from one side to the other), we also organise more local meetings for those in the East, West, North & South of the constituency, to give people the opportunity to meet other members and supporters of the Green Party in their immediate vicinity.
Shropshire's own Pentabus Rural Theatre Company presents 'This Land', a touring production in conjunction with Salisbury Playhouse.
Fracking. How far down do you own the land beneath your feet?
How much does where you live inform the person you become?
What happens when someone else comes along and stakes their claim?
For young couple Bea and Joseph this is a story of fracture: of fractured hearts, lives and lands.
This Land digs down through the history – and the future – of a patch of earth and everything that has and will happen there. Be taken on a theatrical journey through an ever-changing landscape with Siân Lloyd's new play.

An opportunity to tell the people who run our (few) buses what we think of them. Thanks to Bus Users UK (www.bususers.org) – in partnership with Shropshire Council & Arriva Midlands - a bus will be parked outside The Bear Hotel, Northgate (in High Town, Bridgnorth) from 10 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. with people in attendance to take note of your views.
In a Shropshire Council event hosted in Church Stretton Library, Professor John Whitelegg will talk on Future Mobility: Bringing world class road safety, public transport, zero carbon and zero air pollution to Shropshire.
There is a growing global awareness that sorting out an efficient transport system to maximise the choices about how we travel is the key to much improved quality of life and better health. There is no automatic reason why the car should be the default option.
In his talk John Whitelegg will illustrate what needs to be done in Shropshire to achieve world-class ranking on high-quality transport services that improve road safety and cater for those groups who either do not wish to drive or, for whatever reason, are unable to drive.
