Green Party leader Natalie Bennett paid a visit to Swindon yesterday as part of her tour of the South West.
The leader, who was elected in 2012, held a question and answer session yesterday afternoon in Cakes and Ale on Devizes Road.
Natalie said: “I think the meeting went really well and there was a very good turnout, especially for a lunchtime meeting.
“I was pretty impressed with the old part of Swindon too, and the reception at Cakes and Ale was really good.”
The visit was part of a three-day tour of the south wet, which saw her visit Bristol, Weston-super-Mare, Bath, Taunton, Exeter and Swindon, where she attended a range of events and meetings, including a discussion on the growth of foodbanks and a discussion on fracking.
Natalie is also promoting the Green Party’s campaign for the European elections and will be joined by lead South West European candidate Molly Scott Cato at several events.
Natalie said: “I am looking forward to a fascinating mix of events, discussions and issues during my tour of the South West. In particular I am keen to push the Green Party agenda for the European elections campaign. For Greens, this means a focus on the need to transform the economy, making it work for people, rather than people working for the economy.”
