Why So Many Paper Newsletters?
People often ask us why we send out so many paper newsletters and question the waste and environmental impact.
On the Paper Newsletters page, Janet Russell explains why we do it,
and why it's not as bad as it looks!
We can now accept online donations for the Keighley and Ilkley local Green Party - see Donate
page and please be generous!
Both monthly subscriptions and one-off donations gratefully accepted.
Please volunteer to help us and sign up
for news and updates.
We Are Not a Traditional Party
Our policy programme is founded on ten pillars, built from policies proposed and
voted on by our members. It sets out what Greens are in politics to do: to end
the system that keeps hurting the environment and all of us who rely on it – and
to build a better alternative.
As other parties run out of ideas, and rely on dated clichés to address the fast
changing and fragile modern world, we embrace the new and relish the bold.
Elected Greens will work to:
- Save the environment
- Green our land
- Protect animal life
- Challenge privilege
- End discrimination
- Champion international friendships
- Liberate our working lives
- Unleash our creative power
- Embed collective kindness in our society
- Deliver quality of life for all

Working Locally and Nationally for a Fairer, Greener Future
Keighley and Ilkley Green Party is one of the local parties within the Green Party of England and Wales.
We aim to work for just, equitable and sustainable communities in Airedale and Wharfedale.
We focus our efforts through the electoral system, and through direct action and campaigns outside the formal political system.
Keighley and Ilkley Green Party meets monthly, usually on the last Wednesday of each month, adjusted for school holidays. Generally there is a public meeting one month and the next month, a business meeting for the executive committee. For more info, please see the Events and Meetings
