The meeting was opened and chaired by the Charnwood Organiser Steve Denham.
There were 40 people in attendance.
Minutes of the last meeting were read and agreed.
Geoff Dickens (East Mids. RO) in his regional report said that the region was now virtually self supporting. During the recent council elections all leaflets in the East Midlands had been designed locally and that the Derby developed leaflet “We Want Our Country Back” had now been adapted nationally.
As a member of the national finance scrutiny committee Geoff reported that the income of the party now exceeded its out outgoings and that party membership at 17th June 2011 was 9628 (East Mids. membership is now over 1100 and growing).
There is to be a relaunch of the Peacock Club.
In Leicestershire the emphasis was once again on branch and group building with recruiting and leafleting.
Steve Denham (Charnwood Organiser) congratulated Cllr. Cathy Duffy on her re-election to Charnwood Borough Council in spite of the vicious hate campaign by the left. Steve thanked Jim Taylor and Mick Dyer for standing in Anstey and Syston in the elections which has brought us new members.
Steve also asked for volunteers and sponsors for a “Round Rutland Water” fundraising event to take place on August 8th.
Cllr. James North (Melton Organiser) said that Melton had become a hub for support network in the East Midlands. James was heavily involved in building and publicising the growing Radio RWB which is daily updating with the stories that the national media ignore. Melton too was the centre during the recent elections for the design of glossy leaflets both national and local.
Cllr. John Ryde expressed his thanks to James for the considerable work he had done during the election.
Cllr. Peter Jarvis spoke after a brief interval. He outlined the problems that our country faces and the British National Party’s policies to deal with them. Peter said that that there was only room for one nationalist party in Britain and that was the BNP. He said that all true nationalists should put aside differences and unite to fight not only the mainstream parties, but also the fake nationalist parties like UKIP.
