THE leader of the Green Party has visited environmental projects in Ludlow and south Shropshire.

The two day visit started at the Green and Ginger café on Sandford Avenue in Church Stretton where Natalie Bennett met the owners

From here she went on to the South Shropshire Furniture Scheme's Reuse Centre, in Weeping Cross Lane, Ludlow, to meet staff and discuss recycling and the creation of local jobs.

The visit also included its carpentry centre in Lower Galdeford to see the repair and refurbishment work taking place.

Natalie Bennett then visited the Home-Start charity that recruits and trains parent volunteers to provide non-judgemental practical and emotional support to help build families’ confidence and their capacity to cope.

In late afternoon there was a meeting at The Food Bank in Clun with the day ending back in Ludlow with a meal at The Unicorn

The Green party leader returned to Little Stretton where she stayed overnight and on Saturday morning was involved in discussions about rail services.

“The South Shropshire Green Party is to be congratulated on its efforts to bring green policies to the forefront in Shropshire,” said Natalie Bennett.
