If we want the Greens to be able to be effective in the Senate, we need to get a Greens senator elected in Victoria

Rose Read is a terrific candidate locally. We’ve had a greater presence than ever before, but now we need you!

You can a make a difference
If you can hand out on election day or  hand out at an early voting centre (in Sandringham or Cheltenham)
we know this is the most effective way to improve the Greens vote

Please email Margie: or call 0401 99 56 99

If you can letterbox leaflets that is also good to raise our profile and get people to think about the Greens. We need to reach over 90,000 voters this week.  We will deliver the letterboxing to you, unless you make other arrangements. 

Please email Paul:  or call 9571 2976

We hope you can help – thanks

Volunteers Neeeeeded

It’s getting busy in the run-up to the election and the next few weeks are going to tick away very fast. The pressure is on and we need people to help us.

Top of the list for the next few weeks is:-

People to hand out HTV’s at the two Pre-Polling Centres  ……. This makes sure we get as many GREENS “How to Vote” leaflets into the hands of the early voters as possible. The number of people Pre-Polling is significant. So this is a priority. We are trying to cover two Centres. The main Goldstein Voting Centre is at Trentham Street Sandringham and the other a shared or border polling centre is at 8 Park Road Cheltenham.  If you live close by this is even better.

If you have a few spare hours please contact Paul –  9571 2976  –

Letterboxing is the other task in need of willing helpers, this usually entails a few hours plus of delivery time, most maps are in the 200 to 350 leaflet number, smaller maps are aviable. If you pick a sunny afternoon or take the dog for a walk and leaflet at the same time, it can be  good exercise and a good way to get to know your neighbourhood. It’s also a good time of years as so many gardens are starting to flower. I personally take in this colorful splendor

It all takes time and effort, the up-side is you will be supporting  great candidates and become part of a dynamic team of Greens that care about the future and think it’s worthwhile working for a better environment.

If interested contact Paul – 9571 2976 or email –


WE HAVE HAD 63,000 LEAFLETS DELIVERED – so to make light work of this lot, we are having a work-bee on Saturday to put them with maps so they can be delivered closer to the election date on the September the 7th.

We already have a few volunteers but with a task this size the more the merrier!  If you have a few spare hours and would like to have some fun in good company, please feel welcome to drop-in at 21 Garden Ave Glen Huntly at 2pm on Saturday 17th August.

We did it – and here are the photos to prove it – and a big thank you to all – xxxxxx
