UKIP are opening a campaign shop in Penarth this weekend (Saturday, November 29) as part of their general election campaign.

The party have also announced that their selection to stand for Cardiff South and Penarth will be John Rees-Evans, who will be using the Glebe Street premises as his main campaign office.

Ukip said that the decision to open a campaign shop in Penarth comes after their recent victory in the Rochester and Strood by-election, where Conservative defector Mark Reckless was voted in.

The shop at 15 Glebe Street will open at 11am on Saturday, November 29.

The shop will stock leaflets as well as Ukip memorabilia such as mugs and umbrellas. It will also be staffed by party members.

Ukip are also planning a day of leafleting in Penarth town centre following the shop opening.
