The Selby Green Party holds regular meetings for members, supporters and anyone interested in Green issues. We meet on the third Tuesday of every month.
We currently meet at The Doghouse, 8 Park Street, Selby, YO8 4PW, from 7pm. It is within a minute or two walking distance of Selby railway station, and is opposite the bus station. Please see Events for further information.
For more information on the next meeting, please contact us, or Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
Selby Green Party covers the Wards within the boundaries of Selby District Council and includes the main towns of Selby, Tadcaster and Sherburn in Elmet and the surrounding rural villages. We come under the Parliamentary Constituency of Selby and Ainsty, which also includes four wards of Harrogate District which are covered at a local level by Harrogate Green Party.
We campaign on local, national and international issues and look to stand candidates in local and general elections.
The next Parliamentary General Election is scheduled for May 2022 (notwithstanding a snap election). The next election for Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) will be in May 2020. County Council elections are in May 2021, and District and Parish Council elections May 2023.
As a member, you can be as active as you like - from armchair and online support to standing as a candidate for election.

Contact us as above for more information about ways you can get involved.
If you support what we are doing, please consider making a donation.
We in the Green Party don't take money from big businesses, but that means that we do have to ask our supporters and party members to contribute individually to our success.
We will be putting in place soon the means to donate electronically to the Selby Green Party.
In the meantime you can donate simply and easily by sending a cheque, made out to Selby Green Party, to:
Treasurer, Selby Green Party, 17 Church Avenue, Selby, YO8 4PG.
Although we have stood paper councillors in the area in the last few years we have no Green Party councillors on the local District or County Councils yet. But we aim to change this.
So we need lots of enthusiastic, committed and hard-working candidates. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates.
Ideally candidates would be paid-up members of the Green Party however this is not essential. All candidates must support The Green Party's main aims and policies.
Our wish is to give every voter in the Selby District the chance to vote Green in both national and local elections. However, we need all the help we can get to make this a reality.
Becoming a candidate need not be particularly demanding - how much work you put in is up to you. Please contact us if you would like to know more about what is involved.
