Get Involved

We are the local Green Party branch covering the Reigate & Banstead and Tandridge local authority areas (including Redhill, Reigate, Horley, Banstead, Caterham, Oxted and the villages around them). We are all volunteers, campaigning for a fairer and greener Borough.

Please join us and get involved.  There is so much to do to win elections, we welcome your help. Whatever skills and interests you have, you will be a great asset to us.

We meet on the first Tuesday of each month, usually in Redhill and usually for an informal get-together and discussion.  All members are welcome to attend all meetings, see details on the ‘What’s On’ page.

We hold other events, such as town centre stalls, leafletting days, social events and more, throughout the year.  Please feel free to come along.

Election Time

In the local elections our aim is to offer residents a Green candidate in all areas. This gives us a stronger presence in local press coverage – for example we are asked to comment on election issues alongside other parties – and also of course lets Green voters vote for someone they want to support. But we are aware that realistically in many areas we will not get a Green candidate elected without a huge campaign effort. We have limited resources so we have to put our campaigning effort just into supporting candidates in places we think we can win. If you are a member of the party and interested in standing as a “paper” candidate (in an area where we do not anticipate a win and will not campaign) please get in touch.

If you are a member of the party and interested in standing as a candidate in a targeted campaign, with the aim of winning and becoming a local councillor, please get in touch .

    Is it true that Robert Eagleton, Chair of Central Lancashire Green Party and Young Greens National Committee Member, has quit the Green Party because “The opportunist moves the Green Party have made and the general direction the Party is moving in are unacceptable” ?

      Hi Graham,

      From the letter you have quoted on the British Communist Party website (here – – scroll down a lot) it seems he has done so.

      His main issue seems to be that rather than setting an illegal budget and playing gesture politics, the Greens in Brighton have chosen to run their city along Green principles for the benefit of their residents. Brighton & Hove is subject to the same central government constraints as every other council, but has still managed to build the first council houses in England for many years, and has made major cycle- and pedestrian-friendly improvements to its transport infrastructure. This year’s budget, although slashed by the most vicious Con-Dem cuts yet, still contains loads of great measures: keeping all the city’s children’s centres open and almost doubling the homelessness budget, to name just two highlights.

      Mr Eagleton goes on to note that he is still supportive of Green policies and will continue to vote Green, even though he is no longer an “electoralist” himself.

      I see you are standing for Labour in Earlswood and Reigate South. Good luck – may the best left candidate win!
