When did you first attend the SODEM protest outside Parliament and why did you come?
14th February 2019. I wanted to support Steve Bray after all the hours he’d put in shouting for our cause. I hoped we could make a difference.

How frequently did you come and when was the last time you attended?
I only came once to SODEM, but I came to all the Marches.
How far from Westminster do you live and what was your travelling time?
120 miles – 3 hours by car and train.
What’s your favourite memory?
Meeting Steve and Madaleina Kay, and seeing Ben Bradshaw and Sarah Wollaston come and join us for ‘Cake not Hate’.

I am a passionate European, devastated by the referendum result and have been trying since then to change our direction of travel. I set up a European Movement group here in Somerset – European Movement Mendip – covering Wells and Somerton and Frome constituencies. We have leafletted, campaigned on the streets, held Brexit impact events but with two Tory MPs failed to make a difference. Now my MP has a junior ministerial role he’s even more of a lost cause. Nevertheless we continue to try to influence him, our other MP and the public as best we can.
My background is in teaching. I am a wife, mother, grandmother and have the full support of all my family whose futures I am really frightened for. The fight for true democracy goes on.
