Our first meeting is planned for Saturday January 16th 2010 in Sidmouth. You can also email me – Sharon Pavey direct for more details on

I am hoping to stand for the general election in the spring if we can get an East Devon group off the ground – PLEASE help us make this happen. Get in touch. That’s me at the bottom with one of my chickens!

The Green Party is the only party that has the policies to tackle head-on the economic crisis and at the same time lay the foundations for a sustainable and fair society.

Life on Earth is under immense pressure. It is human activity, more than anything else, which is threatening the well-being of the environment on which we depend. Conventional politics has failed us because its values are fundamentally flawed. The Green Party isn’t just another political party. Green politics is a new and radical kind of politics guided by core principles like building a sustainable society that guarantees our long-term future.

Humankind depends on the diversity of the natural world for its existence. Green Party members do not believe that other species are expendable. Our actions should also take account of the well-being of other nations, other species, and future generations. We should not pursue our well-being to the detriment of theirs.

A healthy society is based on voluntary co-operation between empowered individuals in a democratic society, free from discrimination whether based on race, colour, gender, sexual orientation, religion, social origin or any other prejudice. The Green Party believes in democratic participation and accountability by ensuring that decisions are taken at the closest practical level to those affected by them.

  1. Hi Sharon – this a GREAT Blog!
    You certainly have hit the ground running, not so much throwing down a gauntlet/challenge, as offering a hand to all those disenfranchised greenies in East Devon who have been awaiting some sort of political life-line at the ballot box.
    Here’s to your being selected asap by East Devon GP members.
    You’d have got my vote ……….

  2. Hello Sharon,
    just to wish you luck in your endeavours.

    Here in South Devon Green Party, we have grown, since April 2008, from approx 30 very dormant members, to nearly 300 now, with many active! So it can be done!
    I am being asked by a group of Somerset local GPs to meet them and give a talk on how we go about expanding our local party. If you would like to come along, you would be most welcome.
    The get-together is likely to be around the end of Feb. in Taunton. Will let you know the exact date/venue when I hear from them.
    All the best,
    Keith Clements. Membership & Recruitment Team Leader


    Hi Sharon,

    Obviously I would like to become a member but being a lot of the time abroad can’t make the meetings. My contribution would be on the design side. At the moment I am designing the next general election freepost leaflets so hopefully will have a style to follow in case we can do something on a smaller scale. I mentioned postcards at 86 pounds per 1000 at the meeting. Can you forward this on to other people as I am not at my own computer?

    Good luck!


  4. Hi Keith – thank you so much for commenting on here, and for telling me about such an inspiring example! I’m so pleased for you and South Devon. Yes, I would be interested in popping over to your talk in Taunton in Feb. I will drop you an email.
