Welcome to Stratford on Avon Compass Group

Stratford on Avon Compass Group is the home for everyone who wants to be part of a more equal, democratic and sustainable future. It is a group devoted to working together in local politics in Stratford on Avon District in South Warwickshire to make a better, fairer society. It is a not for profit organisation.

We are a group of local people in the Stratford on Avon District who are active in a number of political parties and none who have come together during 2021 to work to bring an end to unrepresentative, divisive politics that serve us so badly. There is much more to be gained by working together than there is by fighting and competing against each other.

Some of this sprung from the local elections in May 2021. A lot of us felt that if we were able to work together, there may just be more success available for us all than if we continue to fight each other, and allow the destructive status quo that is slowly throttling British politics to continue. 

We have input from the Green Party, the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrat Party as well as people who belong to no political party. In June 2021, a number of us were able to sit down and produce a short statement that is designed to tell you what we are about:

Political parties co-operating and working together to form a coherent opposition to offer the people better governance based on fairness, transparency, openness, and engagement.

We are proud to be aligned with Compass - a home for those who want to build and be a part of a Good Society; one where equality, sustainability and democracy are not mere aspirations, but a living reality. Compass is founded on the belief that no single issue, organisation or political party can make a Good Society a reality by themselves so we have to work together to make it happen.
