This week i attended the Yorkshire Party summer conference, in Bridlington. I met around 50 members and supporters of the party from across the county, including a number from our own area such as party Chair Dr Lucy Brown and Hemsworth parliamentary candidate Martin Roberts.
The discussion was lively, given the excellent results for the party in the general election. It is hard to believe that in such a short space of time we have risen to be the 6th largest party in England, regardless of the fact that we only stood candidates in Yorkshire! In some seats we beat the Liberal Democrats and the Greens, taking a number of 3rd placed finishes along the way. I will continue to speak up for South Kirkby and Moorthorpe as a member of the Yorkshire Party and am proud to do so.
The full keynote speech given by leader Stewart Arnold at the summer conference can be read here. See what you think of it.
