UKIP is a patriotic, nationwide political party whose number one policy is to restore and uphold genuine democracy in Westminister – true Brexit, nothing less.
The UKIP Skipton & Ripon branch (founded in 1998) covers the constituency of Skipton & Ripon, an area that is served by two district councils, Craven District Council and Harrogate Borough Council and one MP.
If you live in Bentham, Cowling, Grassington, Masham, Pateley Bridge, Ripon, Settle, Skipton or any of the various settlements in-between, then you are with UKIP Skipton & Ripon. Welcome!
UKIP Skipton & Ripon has fought elections around the constituency at all council levels and nationally, gained more seats than any other party in the Euro elections of 2014.
On June 23rd 2016 a clear majority of voters in Skipton and Ripon sent the instruction to the government to leave the EU and we intend to work ceaselessly to ensure this is delivered.
We encourage current members and invite new members to consider putting themselves forward as UKIP council candidates in all the wards of our constituency. Those living in Ripon are represented by Harrogate Council and those in Skipton by Craven District Council.
We also seek candidates to stand for Ripon City Council and Skipton Town Council.
Our membership is spread across the constituency and regularly meets at two locations, one in Skipton and one in Ripon to ensure all members have the chance to meet and hear what is going on in within the branch, region and nationally.
The branch is linked to UKIP North Yorkshire County which includes 7 local constituencies and then UKIP Yorkshire & North Lincolnshire Region which has some 53 constituencies. We work together to promote UKIP’s message and promote electoral success.
