Bath: Eleanor Field

Eleanor Field works in Bath as a project manager for a local independent business. She moved to the city six years ago, seeking a better quality of life for her and her teenage daughter.

Eleanor and the local Green Party has campaigned all year round on air pollution, fighting hard to address the dirty air in their beautiful city.

She says: “We need more women in parliament. We need a louder Green voice.

Rental prices have soared in Bath; my own rent has increased by 40%. Roads are more congested and air polluted above safe EU levels. There are huge concerns about the outsourcing of NHS and public services, particularly for the vulnerable, which will only worsen the inequality so visible in Bath.”

At the last General Election, the Green Party received 11.9% of the vote in Bath and won their first Councillors.
