Join Baroness Jenny Jones and Brighton Kemptown candidate Davy Jones on The Great Green Walk from Peacehaven to the Palace Pier.
Can you keep up with the Joneses?
Join Davy Jones, Green Party Parliamentary Candidate for Brighton Kemptown, and Jenny Jones, Baroness of Moulsecoomb, in the Great Green Walk from Peacehaven to the Palace Pier on Thursday 19 February.
Jenny and Davy and fellow progressives will trek the whole length of this diverse and beautiful constituency, starting with rolling green hills at Peacehaven, continuing along the coast, the sea to the left and chalk cliffs to the right, stopping for a coffee in Davy’s childhood hangouts in Saltdean, along Kemp Town village and finishing at the Palace Pier.
Celebrating the spectacular Green surge – Brighton Kemptown’s Green Party membership has more than doubled in the last month, and nationally the UK-wide party now has the third-largest membership in the country – Jenny and Davy will be talking to residents and visitors along the six-mile route.
“I stand up for fairness – an end to so-called ‘austerity’ which punishes the poor for the faults of the bankers; and for the future – protecting our precious environment from the vested interests of Big Business so that everyone can enjoy its resources sustainably,” said Davy Jones. “Brighton Kemptown is a treasure of a constituency – with such diverse people and geography. But we must fight to protect our Deans, our cliffs, our shops, our more vulnerable residents, our children’s future here.”
Down from the House of Lords for the day, where she sits as the Green Party’s representative, London Assembly member Jenny Jones was brought up in Moulsecoomb and is nostalgic for the sea. “Brighton is a very special place. It’s always been more compassionate and radical than London. Its people have already shown they can stand up and be counted. Voting Green, for Kemptown’s Davy Jones and Caroline Lucas in neighbouring Pavilion, is standing up for what matters to us all – and our children,” said Jenny Jones.
The walk will start in Peacehaven from the car park on South Coast Road at the junction of Roderic Avenue, beside Barclays Bank, at 11.15am. Stop-offs include Saltdean cafe on the seafront (12.15pm), Rottingdean cafe on the seafront (1pm), Ovingdean cafe on the seafront (2pm), Brighton Marina (2.30pm), Kemp Town village (3.30pm) and Palace Pier (4.15pm). All timings are very approximate!
