UKIP’s Tewkesbury Branch has elected 21 year old Matt Young from Longlevens as the Eurosceptic party’s youngest Branch Chairman at its recent Annual General Meeting held at the town’s Tudor House Hotel.

Retiring Branch Chairman and UKIP Parliamentary Candidate for Tewkesbury  in the 2015 General Election Stuart Adair said :- “We are absolutely delighted that Matt has taken on this extremely important role. Young people are the future of both the party and the country, and it is therefore extremely gratifying that UKIP Tewkesbury has elected the UK’s youngest Branch Chairman.

Matt is born and bred in Longlevens, and he will be fighting the Longlevens Division in the Gloucestershire County Council Elections this coming May. However Matt also has a great knowledge of the rest of the Tewkesbury District, and he will be working hard to increase our support there as well. Now more than ever we need people of Matt’s calibre, energy and enthusiasm to hold the Remain supporting Prime Minister Theresa May to account, and to ensure that she means what she says when stating that “Brexit means Brexit.”

Matt Young commented :- “It is a real honour to have been elected UKIP Branch Chairman in the area in which I grew up and in which I have lived all my life. I am very grateful to Stuart Adair for all of his hard work in building up UKIP’s vote and organisation throughout the whole of the Tewkesbury District.

Our focus must now be on this May’s Gloucestershire County Council Elections to ensure that voters in the Tewkesbury District will have a real alternative to the Conservatives, and that voters will also have the opportunity to demonstrate to the Lib Dems at the ballot box that they should not attempt to frustrate the clearly expressed will of the British people with their call for a second Referendum. After all Tewkesbury voted Leave along with the rest of the UK.”
