Ely & District Progressives

Local people attempting to shake up local politics

What is Ely & District Progressives?

Ely & District Progressives came from a pretty simple observation that there are many people in the Ely and the surrounding district whose progressive views are not represented by our elected representatives.

The aim of the Ely Progressives group is to get those people talking to each other and working together to:

  • Increase the number of elected representatives with a progressive outlook
  • Put together progressive solutions to local issues


The group started following the 2015 general election.

During the summer of 2015 representatives of the local Greens, Labour and Liberal Democrats were contacted to discuss the idea.

For the past nine months a rotating group of local party representatives and non-aligned individuals have been meeting on a monthly basis.

In the last month the group went public with this website and on Twitter and in the last week or so we’ve set up a Facebook page & group.

Get involved

If you think the group sounds interesting why not get involved?

  1. This feels like it needs a discussion in the garden at The Albert or the like
