Natalie Bennett, Leader of the Green Party, will be speaking in Tonbridge on Tuesday 12th March, 7.30pm at the Forsyth Hall (Age Concern Hall) in Bradford Street. All are welcome.
Natalie says:

“I have been lucky enough to travel throughout the country, seeing what elected Greens can do to improve their communities and create useful employment. On 12th March, I will be offering examples from this experience which have local relevance to Tonbridge and to neighbouring towns. The examples will include:
·       modern pedestrianised town centres
·       Far more social housing
·       An end to empty homes, long-term empty shopfronts and offices, and empty industrial sites that blight our communities
·       More allotments
·       20 mph limits on residential roads
·       Cheaper bus services
·       Lower rail fares
·       Improved cycling and walking routes.”

Natalie will be visiting some local initiatives during the day of the 12th March, and hearing from local Greens about the challenges to the West Kent area which are presented by the Coalition Government’s many failings.
