When did you first attend the SODEM protest outside Parliament and why did you come? 

11 December, 2017.

Roughly how old are you?


How frequently did you come and when was the last time you attended?

I came to SODEM about 5 or 6 times. Last attended, it might have been 13 June 2018 because this is the last time I found a mention on my Facebook timeline.

How far from Westminster do you live and what was your travelling time?

About 100 miles, traveling time 3 hours each way.

What’s your favourite memory?

Meeting Andrew Adonis (although he went a bit brexity along the way), and pictures including me featuring on some of the news websites.

Tell me your story

I’m a middle aged, middle class wife and mother. Educated to post doctoral standard in a scientific subject. We probably would never have lived abroad, but to have freedom of movement taken away from us made me incandescent!   My hubby is Welsh, but I’m English as far back as I go, so no chance of a different passport, not for me, or the kids (unless Wales decides to leave the UK and rejoin the EU).   It’s all so completely unnecessary, and I wanted to make a difference, so I attended SODEM and went on marches. It didn’t make a difference, but it made me feel better.
