Growing interest in UKIP leads to move
THE UK Independence Party's Derby branch says it has had to move its group meetings to a larger venue because of growing attendances.
It has switched from The Lawns, Chellaston, to the Bridge Inn, Shelton Lock.
UKIP's Derby branch formed in mid-2011 and spokesman David Gale said its membership in the city had increased from "17 to more than 60" during that time.
He said: "We now get a couple of dozen people attending our branch meetings coming from all quarters of society in Derby."
Details of upcoming meetings are posted on www.ukipderby.org.uk.
