Thank you for visiting the pages of UKIP Great Yarmouth Association’s new website. I hope you will find it both interesting and informative.
Our Association is a locally based group which supports and promotes the aims and objectives of UKIP nationally at the same time as representing the people of Great Yarmouth at local and county level.
The Association is run by volunteers and supported by ordinary members of our community who believe that there are alternatives to the existing political establishment and what they stand for. You may well hold those same views.
If you would like to find out more about getting involved with UKIP-
How we Work
Although UKIP Great Yarmouth differs from other political parties in many ways, the issue of democratic election of its Councillors, Councillor group members and branch officers is fundamental to its operation. Annually members of the Branch Executive are elected at the Branch AGM which is held in September, where all eligible members have the chance to cast their votes.
Similarly our Councillor group hold elections at their AGM in May to adopt their
officers for the forthcoming year. These positions are voted on by the Councillor
group members. Also this year saw the voting in of UKIP -
