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

After the winter pic of Steven Bray alone in the snow. I saw that pic and I knew I had to come and support him.

Roughly how old are you?


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

About twice a month, until about February 2020.

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

High Wycombe. 1 hour 30 min.

What’s your favourite memory?

Being recorded by Anthony Kelly. Here is the link to the video he made of me.

Tell me your story

I was brought up on nuclear armed RAF bases in Germany. I was too young to understand what it was really for. Never knew my grandfather Hugh on my mother’s side. He committed suicide after the war when he had been on HMS Kenya on Operation Pedastal to Malta as a Navy gunner. Because of my father being in the RAF, I had to go to boarding school. My life has been shaped by European politics. The EU has been a reassuring background presence. I admit I did not know enough about the EU before 2016.
