Eigon, Thanks! For pointing your esteemed readers in my direction. I was a Green Councillor, 1986-92, but more from Congresbury than Stroud. You may be thinking of the excellent John Marjoram, who was elected like me in 1986 (But I was 20 minutes before John, something he has never forgiven me for). Unlike me, he continued to plough the furrow of the Green Councillor.

Cheers
