Remain campaign stall – Saturday

We’ll be running another EU Remain campaigning stall in Beeston centre on Saturday (18th) from 10:30am.

Meet at the Bell statue just down from Sainsbury’s.

Please do come down if you have a little time to spare. This is the crucial last week before the vote.

As Richard Eddleston, our chair, writes in a campaigning email:

Judging by the latest polls, if we care about remaining in Europe, then we need to do everything we possibly can to achieve that result.  As it is, it is looking increasingly likely that Boris will be Prime Minister in a couple of months time.


Saturday: EU Remain stall & leafleting in Beeston


Broxtowe Greens will be running a campaigning stall for Remain on Saturday morning (11th) from 10am. This will take place in Beeston town centre, next to the bell statue on the walk through from Sainsbury’s.

We’ll be handing out Green and Remain leaflets explaining our arguments for staying in the EU.

Please come along and say hello.

Beeston: The big EU debate

A packed crowd of well over three hundred people attended tonight’s EU referendum debate in Beeston. Passionate debate on all sides with arguments ranging across all sorts of issues including economy, democracy, trade, immigration, TTIP and farming.

The most passionate intervention came from a Remainer who asked what the generation who fought and died in the War would think about the plans to turn our backs on Europe.

A straw poll at the end was won by Leave. A massive warning to Remain campaigners in Beeston. We need to remake the arguments and get the vote out.

Recycling news: you need to register to use Lilac Grove

From this month householders in Broxtowe need to register in advance to use the recycling facilities at Lilac Grove in Beeston.

It’s free and here’s the link:

From September, vehicles that are not pre-registered may not be allowed on the site.

Post Office Closure

A couple of quick updates on the possible closure of Beeston’s main Post Office.

The issue was debated at the Council on 2nd March. There’s a report from Nottingham Evening Post. Over 3,900 signatures in the end for the petition.

If you want to learn more about how the Post Office will go about its forthcoming consultation on the planned closure you can read information at Citizen’s Advice and at the Post Office’s own corporate site.

Needless to say the Green Party are against the plans and we’ll keep you posted (sorry about the pun).
