Power Up for Change at Worcester Green Party's Electric Homes for the Future Event!

Tuesday 14th May 2024 11:00-13:00

Worcester Green Party held an electrifying event at GL, a showroom buzzing with the latest in sustainable home appliances. We had 14 attendees charged with possibility.

Fellow Green enthusiasts learnt how to reduce their home’s carbon footprint with energy-efficient products, and got amped about building a brighter future. There were vegan refreshments, an informative tour led by Callum Whittall on GL’s exciting range of products including infrared heating, air source hot water cylinders and EV chargers that lit our spark! Thank you to everyone who came and had the chance to connect and be a positive force for change. Our thanks to Jon Bodenham for organising this event.

International Women's Day History Walk and Talk

On International Women's Day, Worcester Green Party hosted a well-attended (40 participants) walk and talk celebrating the inspiring women who shaped Worcester's past. Leisa Taylor, a feminist and Green Party candidate for Cathedral Ward, led the 2.6km tour. Over the course of 90 minutes, participants explored landmarks associated with these local heroines, gaining insights into their triumphs and struggles. The walk concluded at the Guildhall, with an optional social lunch at the Centenary Lounge for those who wished to continue the conversation. This accessible event provided a unique opportunity to learn about Worcester's rich history and the remarkable women who played a significant role in it.


Sunday 28th January 10:00-12:00

Cllr Karen Lewing, Cllr Hannah Cooper and Cllr Matt Jenkins were joined by local residents to plant snowdrops and winter aconites on the grass in Harvey Walk. The bulbs were paid for by Karen and Hannah’s ward funding.

Cllr Hannah Cooper said ‘Karen and I got the street name plates installed in Harvey Walk in the Autumn, planting spring bulbs is the next phase in developing the placemaking in this area’.

Cllr Karen Lewing specifically chose bulbs that would benefit the first pollinators of the year.

Special thanks to our Events Coordinator, Jon for making the whole event possible.

Guided Nature Walk - Warndon

In October 2023, 28 nature enthusiasts in Worcester enjoyed a leisurely guided walk along a section of the Wild About Worcester Way. Led by Paul Snookes, the co-creator the 12 mile trail, the two hour exploration began at St Nicholas Church.

As the group meandered towards Worcester Woods, Paul shed light on the fascinating natural history of the area, bringing the environmental context to life.

The walk provided a wonderful opportunity to connect with fellow nature lovers and learn about Warndon’s green spaces. A delicious reward awaited everyone at the finish point in Worcester Woods- hot soup prepared by Patrick and Jon alongside fresh bread rolls.

International Womens Day

Wednesday, 8th March 2023, 11:00 to12:45

Hannah Cooper led a walk around Worcester looking at the women who have shaped Worcester. Huge thanks to everyone who came out in such surprisingly snowy conditions! We started by being interviewed by BBC Hereford & Worcester. We learnt about greats such as Vesta Tilley, Hannah Snell, Shelia Scott and Mrs Henry Wood to name but a few during the walking tour. The tour ended in the shelter of the Guildhall where Hannah pointed out a dreadful piece of misogyny on display: a scold's bridle. If elected, Hannah vowed to push for proper curation of the instrument of torture. We were all thankful to warm up and have a delicious lunch at nearby Auntie Em's Tea Room which was chosen because it's a woman-owned business and its child-friendly ethos.

Both speakers provided actionable tips – from using "ugly" veggies to supporting sustainable businesses. The audience buzzed with questions and ideas, eager to be part of the solution. The conversation planted seeds of change. Let's carry the momentum forward, fight food waste together, and build a more sustainable food system for all!
