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-GY, please use the contact details on the contact page to contact us, or the contact details on the Councillors page to contact your elected UKIP representatives at Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Norfolk County Council.

Best regards

Peter Fitzgerald


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 - GY 's first candidate for the position of Mayor for the municipal year 2016 - 2017.

Executive Committee   This is made up of the following officers and they can be contacted through our contact page;

Chairman                       Mr Peter Fitzgerald

Vice-Chairman              Cllr Paul Hammond

Secretary                       Cllr Kay Grey

Treasurer                       Mr Peter Phipps

Campaigns Officer        Cllr Alan Grey

Fundraiser                    Mrs Donna Hammond

Executive Officer          Cllr Chris Walch

From time to time and for specific purposes, members may be seconded to the Executive Committee. This is done by majority vote of the executive, and secondments are for pre determined periods not exceeding the life of the present Executive Committee.

Annual General Meeting   Held in September at above venue, all members notified and eligible to vote. Non member attendance at Chairman's discretion. At the meeting on 22 September 2016 Chris Walch and Donna Hammond were appointed to the Executive Committee.
