Meet the team

Southwark Green Party is run entirely by volunteers. We are a grassroots party run by people who are passionate about green politics and making a difference.

Our officers and campaigners play a key role in supporting our candidates for election campaigns and in planning the wider activity of the local party.


Officers are elected at our Annual General Meeting. If you have any questions, email us at [email protected] We look forward to hearing from you.

The motivation to join the Green Party and to stand as Co-Chair for his local party is simple: to get more Greens elected. With “Greens in the room” communities are in safer hands and responsible and progressive steps can be taken to tackle the climate and ecological emergency. That means starting locally to secure success in Southwark and in London-wide elections. 

A key role for the Chair and all elected officers is to provide an engaging, supportive and effective local party - it is the bedrock of all of our activity. While the demands can be high the rewards are always great and working with the talented and committed officers, candidates and network of campaigners in Southwark makes it all worthwhile.

Susan re-joined the Green Party in 2019 after several years living abroad. Like her co-Chair Bartley, she is a firm believer in the need for more “Greens in the room”. Translating “think globally, act locally” to Southwark, the co-Chairs work in the background to support our election candidates, build a strong team of officers and encourage as many members as possible to get involved.

Philip Collins, Treasurer

The job of the Treasurer is to look after the Party's finances, and to keep the membership and officers informed of the Party's financial health. 

The Treasurer presents annual accounts at the Party's AGM and provides a brief report at each Officers' Meeting. He or she is responsible for prompt payment by the Party for goods and services, for ensuring that expenditure is for the proper purposes of the Party, for arranging prompt refund of expenditures carried out on our behalf, and for management of any monies owed by or to the Party.  Quarterly returns have to be supplied to the national GPEW Finance Office, and at election times, together with the Party's Election Agent, the Treasurer is responsible for ensuring that we comply with the financial side of election law, and that we provide correct and timely information to the Electoral Commission.
