In light of recent events
In light of the recent tragedy in Manchester, Bath Green Party have decided to postpone campaigning until further notice.
However, some houses in Bath have today received a leaflet from us, and more will during the course of the week. This is sadly out of our control as the leaflet in question is being delivered by Royal Mail and not our volunteers. We apologise for the unfortunate timing of these deliveries and hope they do not cause offence.
Our thoughts are with the victims of this attack, their friends, family and all the service people that have been and continue to work tirelessly.
In a statement following the attacks, Green Party co-leaders Jonathan Bartley and Caroline Lucas said:
“Our thoughts are with those affected by this appalling incident in Manchester. For young people to be targeted in this way is utterly atrocious.
“As ever our emergency services have done us proud – and we pay tribute to the police, firefighters and paramadics who stepped up in this time of need.
“The people of Manchester responded last night with love, solidarity and openness – and in the coming days and weeks we’ll follow their example and show we won’t let terrorism tear us apart.”
