Ashley is a true microcosm of Bristol. It not only has fantastic parks and vibrant community centres but is also home to incredible institutions like St Werburghs City Farm, Hamilton House and St Pauls Learning Centre.
However, Ashley also contains some of the most deprived areas of Bristol, and there are worries about expensive and insecure housing, air pollution, youth provision and unwanted graffiti.
To tackle these issues, our candidates want to fight for youth service funding, plant an urban orchard and continue to support charities that serve the most vulnerable in our society.
Vote to return Ashley to the Green party in May 2020, and we’ll be able to make it a better place for everyone.
I started getting involved in local politics after the many disappointments of 2016, as I felt I could either give up or dig in and try to make a difference. My education and work experience are as a science communicator, so my attitude is always to follow the evidence, consider the impacts and try and make life better.More about Will
Councillor Jude Brew English, Tim Wye and Will Mountford are the Green candidates standing in Ashley Ward for the 2020 local elections.
Ashley had two Green Councillors until the boundary change in 2016, when the ward grew in size. We won one councillor and very narrowly lost out on the 2nd and third seats to Labour. It’s time for Ashley to go Green again!
