The Basingstoke branch of the Women’s Equality Party (WE) and the Basingstoke and North East Hampshire Green Party are marking Basingstoke’s Green Week by holding a one-day roadshow in three different areas of the borough.

The roadshow will be on June 17, where the two groups will be speaking to residents about environmental concerns, and listening to their ideas for improvements both in social change and local government.

Stacy Hart, WE Basingstoke local election candidate for Hatch Warren and Beggarwood, said: “The environment is a huge priority for WE Basingstoke and we have previously successfully drawn Council’s attention to the benefits of feminist-led climate action.

"WE believe coming together collaboratively with other political parties to pool our differing approaches to the environment will produce the best results for residents, and we look forward to hearing people’s thoughts and ideas on the day.”

The group is set to visit Vemillion Cafe in Chineham from 10am to 12pm, travelling to Beggarwood Park between 12.30pm and 2.30pm, before finishing at Basingstoke Train Station, where they will be between 3pm and 5pm.

Green Party local election candidate for Chineham, Jonathan Jenkin, said: “With record-breaking temperatures across the UK last year and record-breaking numbers of votes for Green candidates this year, the UK is clearly shifting towards wanting representatives who prioritise tackling environmental issues.

"We’re excited to be reaching out to the community in this way for Green Week and look forward to hearing your priorities for us going forward. We're pleased to finally have hope of decisive action being taken locally thanks to this new council administration, of which Stacy and I will continue to work hard to be a part.”
