NORFOLK GREEN PARTY MEETS TO LAUNCH NEW ERA FOR THE PARTY, this Saturday

The 20 September 2008 will be a date to be remembered as a momentous occasion for the Green Party in Norfolk for years to come.  The Norfolk Green Party bi-annual General Meeting be held that day (at 10.00 am - get in touch with me if you'd like to come along); it will be the first held in the company of the new Deputy Leader of the Party, one of Norfolk's own, Adrian Ramsay.
 
In what will be a lively, upbeat affair, we will be building upon the Party's new solid Leadership structure, led nationally by the inspirational and charismatic Caroline Lucas.  With Adrian Ramsay as her Deputy, it is an extremely exciting time for the Green Party in general, and the Norfolk Greens in particular: the next 12 - 18 months will see Ramsay challenge Charles Clarke for the Norwich South seat in the General Election, and June 2009 will see me run for MEP in the Euro-elections here in East Anglia.
 
Norwich could prove pivotal to both campaigns. Norwich has proved to be a stronghold for the Green Party.  Caroline Lucas became an MEP for South-East England because she has such high support in Oxford and Brighton.  In the same way, Norwich and Norfolk could play the key role in projecting me on to the European stage.
 
And if the General Election is called as expected in the 12 months after the June 2009 Euro-elections, the momentum gained from my campaign may get behind Adrian's and snowball him into Westminster. 
 
As we Norfolk Greens convene this Saturday, the knowledge that Ramsay could win the Green Party's first ever seat in Westminster, and that I have a real chance of becoming an MEP for the Eastern region, will I believe lift the mood of the meeting like never before.

I am startled to learn that the date of the Norfolk Green Party meeting is on 20th September as, according to the Norwich Green Party Members' Newsletter the meeting is on the 27th.

The Norfolk Green meeting may be smaller as a result of the apparent date change - 20th September is the date of the all day event of Transitioh Norwich.
