Jonathan Bartley, co-leader of the Green Party of England and Wales, is to visit West Berkshire Greens in Newbury on Wednesday 26 September.

This will be the first visit by a Green Party leader to West Berkshire in recent memory, although Amelia Womack, deputy leader of the party, spent a day campaigning with members in Thatcham and Newbury during last year’s general election.

Jonathan Bartley was elected co-leader of the Green Party, with Caroline Lucas, in 2016. He is currently standing for re-election as co-leader alongside Siân Berry. The result will be announced at the party conference in October.
