Green Women In Action – Serena Wootton

Serena Wooten, Yeovil Green Party Candidate #GetGreensElected

As the 2024 General Election approaches, Green Party Women are shining a light on their dedicated members striving to secure Green votes. Today we are focussing on Serena Wootton.

Serena is the Green Party’s parliamentary candidate (PPC)for Yeovil in South Somerset. She is also a Councillor on Chard Town Council. Raised in a farming community in Gloucestershire, Serena has been an environmental advocate since her early teens.

With a rich background in education and teaching, Serena rose to the position of Assistant Head, overseeing data and a sensory team. In 2017, seeking a shift towards nature and well-being, Serena and her family purchased a business with its own woodland in South Somerset. This move allowed her to explore sustainable living and ways to reduce environmental impact.

Upon relocating to Chard, Serena became actively involved in her community. She volunteered for the local school recycling collection, successfully raising funds for a bike rack. She also initiated the Plastic Free Chard Facebook page, mobilising businesses and volunteers to rethink single-use plastics.

Serena is a proud mother and foster carer. She also has a passion for swimming and other water-based activities, which she shares with friends and family. Her commitment extends beyond environmental issues to social justice, particularly advocating for children and young people facing challenges in accessing their local community, helping them play meaningful roles within it.

Serena is also a strong supporter of 50sWomen and has been vocal about her support for CEDAWinLAW and their wish to end the direct and indirect discrimination 50swomen have suffered. Watch this video on her facebook page to learn more.

Serena’s dedication to social and environmental causes naturally led her to the Green Party, so she is thrilled to serve as the prospective parliamentary candidate for Yeovil.
