Green Party joy as Green MEP to speak at Founding Meeting of new Cotswold Green Party

Members of the newly-formed Cotswold Green Party will welcome Molly Scott Cato, Green MEP for the South West of England to their Founding Meeting at Ashcroft Church, Ashcroft Rd, Cirencester on 3rd October. She will be speaking on “The EU: its positive role and how to make it better” at 12:00 and members of the public are welcome to join the meeting then. A former Professor of Economics at Roehampton University, Molly is a member of the influential Economic & Monetary Affairs and Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committees in the European Parliament.

Andrew Maclean, from Great Rissington, chairman-designate of the new local Green Party said “We are very pleased to be welcoming Molly to our district, almost as pleased as we are to be celebrating the formation of the new Green Party for the Cotswolds. Our membership in the District has grown ten-fold over the last year and we look forward to bringing a distinctive, much-needed Green voice to political life in the area.”

The group will be holding monthly business meetings on Tuesday evenings in Northleach and special meetings in other towns throughout the District at other times.
