Bentham and North Craven Group of Skipton and Craven Green Party

 MainSt Bentham

Who are we?

We are a sub-group attached to Skipton & Craven Constituency Party. We often car-share to attend meetings in Skipton or to attend Green Party regional and national events. Due to our proximity to Lancaster, we are also welcomed at meetings of interest with the North Lancashire Green Party.

What do we do?

Craven District Council Elections: we stood in Ingleton/Clapham Ward in 2018 when Sarah Wiltshire polled over a third of the vote.


North Yorkshire County Council Elections 4th May 2017: Sarah Wiltshire (pictured right) stood as our candidate in the North Craven Division. This Division covers both Ingleton/Clapham and Bentham/Burton wards. Sarah polled 866 votes, again a third of the vote, following a 'progressive' alliance with the Labour Party. 


If you would like to help with our campaigns, for example, delivering leaflets please get in touch.


We have our own events and meetings in Bentham (see Contact Us below to get details)

We are currently involved with the General Election campaign for Andy Brown,

Green candidate for Skipton and Ripon. 

Some of us are quite active within the party, while others are happy to offer occasional support. We were active in attending demonstrations at the Preston New Road fracking site (near Blackpool) until the site ceased operation recently.
