I used to attend with groups from Stratford4Europe, WarwickDistrict4Europe and Banbury4Europe, each time I and the others would drag more along.
I think I attended the second ever SODEM, after being unable to attend the first due to being out of the country (working freely in the EU!).
I became very concerned for the next generation's future and the future of my business.
I planned to leave the UK, but kept putting it off as I love this country, my home of 50 years. And I am devastated to leave family and friends behind in this chaos.
I think the first time I attended SODEM was February 2018. I had admired what Steve was doing. All I remember was that it was freezing cold and snowing.
