The party now has 640 members and now hopes to boost its profile even further.

The party’s spokesman said members – and people who may wish to join – will be encouraged to actively participate, and can get involved in demonstrations against the Government’s grammar school plans and an upcoming anti-fracking campaign, amongst other campaigns.

They added: “We want to engage with the public more, on all social media platforms and by being physically approachable in street-based campaigns.”

The party will also host informal Politics In The Pub events, to encourage healthy debate.

Anyone who would like to attend one of the sessions can email annie_higgs1@hotmail.com for more information.
