Tamworth Green Party have been shocked and saddened by the death of their friend and colleague Sarah Walters.
Sarah was a long-standing member of The Green Party and her presentations about her beloved Alvecote Wood and its fantastic biodiversity were fascinating and always well received by the local party.
Sarah stood as a candidate several times and will be sadly missed by all Tamworth Green Party members.
Our thoughts are with her husband and best friend Stephen.
As a result of Sarah’s death, the borough council election for the Glascote ward – which should have taken place on Thursday, May 3, 2018 – has been postponed until Friday, May 25, 2018.
The Green Party Candidate for the countermanded election in Glascote Ward is Kevin Jones.
Kevin is a Yoga and Pilates instructor who holds classes at The Sacred Heart Community Centre.
Tamworth Green Party will be standing a record number of candidates in next month’s Borough Council Elections.
The Greens will be represented in more wards than ever before across the borough, providing voters with the option of supporting genuinely progressive candidates on Thursday, May 3rd.*
In total, candidates will contest six wards and be promoting core Green Party principles such as:
- Rebuilding our economy
- Bringing the railways back into public hands
- Keeping the public at the heart of the NHS, preventing privatisation by stealth
- Education being free for all
- Action on climate change with a fierce opposition to fracking.

The names of the candidates and the wards they will contest are as follows:
