The first invitation is from the UKIP WALES GRASSROOTS CONFERENCE:
Hello to you all
It was sad that we could not convene the last ‘Grassroots’ meeting. But I am sure you would all feel more for those who suffered damage to their homes and property due to the floods. David Rowlands, myself and others tried and failed to get passed Crickhowell by three routes.
However, we will re-convene on the 10th November at the STRAND HALL, STRAND STREET Builth Wells at 11.00
The postcode is LD2 3AA and there is free parking in the car park by the bridge.
I have attached several documents*) that shows the overall results in Wales in the last few elections.
These have been put together by Hugh Moelwyn-Hughes so that it can help to target specific constituencies.
My regards to you all and I look forward to meeting you in Builth Wells – weather permitting!
Ian Williams – Secretary UKIP Wales Committee

Commented Councillor Richard Leppington (Blakeney and Bream),who is Cabinet Member for Housing, Economic Regeneration, Infrastructure and Asset Management on Forest of Dean District Council :
“We are delighted that UKIP Leader Gerard Batten has taken time out of his extremely busy schedule to visit us in the Forest of Dean. We are extremely proud of the contribution that UKIP Councillors have made and continue to make to projects and developments which both improve the lives of Foresters and the local infrastructure. I feel certain that Gerard will take back to London with him a very positive impression of UKIP Councillors delivering for their voters right here in the Forest of Dean.”
Mr Batten will be speaking at the Parkend Working Men’s Club, Lion Row, Parkend GL15 4JZ at 7.30 pm on Friday 22nd February.
Tickets can be obtained by visiting:
Richard Ford adds:
We are hoping to fill Gerard’s Forest of Dean (FOD) meeting with members in the South West, South Wales and the West Midlands as the FOD is so easily accessible from all three by both road and rail.
Also the fact that the Severn Bridge toll will no longer be applicable is key as, although in England, the FOD is on the Welsh side of the river.
Also parking is free at the venue and it is easily accessible from Lydney. Chepstow and Gloucester Railway Stations.
Lydney is easily reached by road and rail from all parts of the South West, South Wales and the Midlands.
Those travelling from Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Somerset and further afield in the South West will be able to benefit from the planned removal of road tolls on the Severn Bridge.
Access from South Wales is quick and easy via Chepstow.
Access from Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and the Midlands is also easy either via Gloucester or via the Severn Bridge.
The nearest railway stations are Lydney, Chepstow and Gloucester.
There is ample free car parking at Parkend Working Men’s Club.
