Leading European Parliamentary Green Party candidate Molly Scott Cato in Cornwall

Comments (3)

The Green Party, which won its first Cornwall seat ever in this year’s local elections, is continuing to spread its message across the county as one of its leading European Parliamentary candidates visits this weekend.

Molly Scott Cato, the Green Party's lead South West candidate for the 2014 European elections, is touring the Duchy to meet residents and discuss green issues.

The Green Party triumphed in Cornwall at this year’s local election in May, when Tim Andrewes took his seat at County Hall as the first and only Green Party member.

Now Ms Scott Cato, an internationally renowned green economist, is touring the county over three days to continue spreading the party's message.

Yesterday she visited the site of the proposed mass burn incinerator at St Dennis and met with campaigners opposing the scheme. Ms Scott Cato was part of a successful Green Party campaign to oppose an incinerator in Gloucestershire.

Today she will visit Newquay to meet residents at a street stall at the resort’s Killacourt before attending Zelah Day Fete in the afternoon.

In the evening she will travel to St Austell for the launch of a green drinks event at the White Hart pub, where she will talk to supporters and members of the public.

Tomorrow, Ms Scott Cato will be in Penzance helping out on a Green Party stall, on Market Jew Street, from 11.00.

She will be joined by Judy Macieowska, the South West Green Party specialist on Fisheries Policy, and also a European candidate. The pair will meet with members of the Cornish Fish Producers Organisation in Newlyn.

    Good point Doitdreckley, but the article is about the Green Party and Tim Andrewes - I'd like to know what he's up to. I think the Green Party are the biggest group on St. Ives town council. St. Ives, like Penzance, is busy shutting public toilets much to the annoyance of local traders and the public. Where does the Green Party stand on that particular issue?

    What an odd question from Dantwo. You could ask that of any councillor.

    Does anyone know what Tim Andrewes has done since getting elected to Cornwall Council?
