East Meets West

East Meets West

On Saturday, 7th. of June the East and West Midlands regions came together for a dinner and social evening at a popular venue in North Warwickshire. It was a great idea as, although we often know the names of activists, candidates and Councillors around the country, it is pleasing to put faces to those names, and make friends with them in a more relaxed setting.

Around 60 people, from all over the Midlands, attended. Before the 3 course dinner, a quiz was set, to break the ice and encourage everybody to discuss the answers with their counterparts in the other region (and, er, crib said answers from them if necessary!). After dinner, a raffle was held, the top prize being 3 bottles (red, white and blue) of champagne. These were the last of those donated to the BNP by Jean Le Penn, from his own vineyards; they brought back memories of seeing Nick Griffin and Mark Collett celebrating outside Leeds Crown Court when they were found innocent of all charges.

The night raised a handsome sum, the proceeds of which will be divided between the two regions to be put towards the 2009 European Elections.
It was an excellent fundraising event, and most enjoyable for everyone. We would like to thank the organisers, our host and their helpers, all of whom worked so hard to make this an event such a success.
