UKIP branch formed in west Cheshire
3:40pm Tuesday 12th March 2013 in News
THE deputy leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) visited Cuddington as part of the establishment of a new branch in Cheshire West.
Close to 70 people attended the first meeting of the branch, which took place at Cuddington Village Hall on February 21, where national deputy Paul Nuttall explained the reasons behind UKIP’s growth nationally, including the UK’s membership of the European Union.
The meeting was organized by Cuddington resident Chris Watkin, who will be planning activities and events leading up to the Euro Elections in 2014 and the General Election in 2015.
Mr Watkin, who stopped being a Conservative activist and joined UKIP four years ago, hopes the formation of the Cheshire West branch will help the party to develop a much greater presence in Northwich and Winsford, as well as the villages inbetween.
He said he was ‘delighted’ with the response and the welcome that Paul Nuttall received added that he looks forward to this new opportunity to raise political awareness within the area.
