Help us mark the 50th anniversary of founding of The Green Party in Coventry

The first public meeting of PEOPLE party was held on 24 February 1973 at 20 Broadgate, Coventry, which was the estate agent showroom of Edward Savage & Associates.

PEOPLE Party was later named the Ecology Party and is now called The Green Party.

We believe that a Heritage Plaque should be placed on Cathedral Lanes, the building nearest to where that showroom stood.

Please sign our petition to ask Coventry City Council for a Heritage Plaque where the first PEOPLE meeting was held.

Needing a safe crossing on the Holbrooks/Lythalls junction Tue, 25 Feb 2020 13:56:27 +0000 Read More... from Needing a safe crossing on the Holbrooks/Lythalls junction

Your local Green Party representative, Stephen Gray, has been campaigning for some time for the Holbrooks Lane-Lythalls Lane-Rotherham Road junction to be prioritised for a safer pedestrian crossing. There are traffic lights, but no pedestrian timer buttons or safe refuge islands.

Thank you for signing Stephen’s petition

Recently 152 signatures of residents in the Holbrooks Lane area were handed in to Coventry City Council, to join your many online signatures. All of you are joining us to call for a safer pedestrian crossing at this very busy junction.

What your local Green Party did

Green Party volunteers from across Coventry and beyond came to help Stephen before lockdown to collect your signatures.

The installation of a full 4-way Pelican/Toucan Crossing with islands at this junction, would make it safer for pedestrians, and would encourage parents to walk their children to school rather than taking them by car, reducing traffic, pollution and accidents.

the dangerous junction

Even Baroness Natalie Bennett, Green Party member of the House of Lords and former Party leader, helped out going door to door with us to gather your opinions and signatures.
