New Green Party branch set up for Rotherham

Have your say

Green Party members have set up a separate branch for Rotherham.

The branch, previously part of the Sheffield and Rotherham group, will cover all 21 Rotherham Council wards and match roughly the parliamentary constituencies of Rotherham, Wentworth and Dearne, and Rother Valley.

A spokesman said: “We intend to fight for representation at local and national level for the Green Party’s thoughtful, ethical, evidence-based policies.”

Coun Rebecca Whyman is joint co-ordinator.
