    UKIP Supporters where out today to celebrate the opening of their local H.Q in Christchurch.
    The office in Bargates, opposite the British Legion, went fully operational this week and already membership in the area has received a boost.
    "We seem to be viewed as a community centre and everybody is welcome. Either drop in or phone 01202 488488.
    "Many of our supporters are people disaffected with the government and others see us as a breath of fresh air on the political scene. While most know UKIP as a party opposed to the vagaries of the EU and uncontrolled immigration we find real concern on education, the health service, pensions, our transport system and social evils like payday loans."
    The Prospective Parliamentary candidate Robin Grey, who came within two votes of upsetting the conservative candidate at the Dorset County council election, is supported by volunteers who man the office daily from 10a.m. to 4p.m.
    At the opening this week Robin said: "Our headquarters is a huge asset and we have made an impact on local affairs, by getting behind the campaign to save the trees and hall in Druitt's Gardens and causing the county council to think again about cutting bus services serving pensioners.
    LATEST NEWS.With strong support from UKIP there was standing room only in the public gallery at the planning meeting in Christchurch on the future of the trees in Druitt Gdns. The trees were saved by one vote. Councillors Hall, Spittle, Mawbey, Neale, Hilliard and Dedman voted to retain the trees and Councillors Jamieson, Bath, Watts, Fox and Smith wanted to remove them. A tree preservation order was made on the trees.
