IT’S NOT A DONE DEAL!

A New Year brings new challenges. Bath for Europe has many ambitious plans for this year. To achieve them, we need your support. Our objective is to win over public opinion. We need to help people see that Brexit is not a done deal.

To do this, we need to exponentially increase the number of conversations that all of us are having with people. We are focusing our efforts on those who voted Remain who have given up hope, and those who voted Leave but who are realising that Brexit is not going to be a good thing for our country. In fact, it would be catastrophic for our country.

Theresa May was interviewed by Andrew Marr on 7th January. The government has decided not to hold a vote on fox-hunting. Mrs May stated, “As I said my own view hasn’t changed. As prime minister, my job isn’t just about what I think about something. It’s about what the view of the country is.”

We need to send Mrs May and all MPs a loud and clear message that WE DO NOT WANT BREXIT! And we, the people, need to have a vote on the final deal.

To engage with more people and have more conversations, we are increasing our outreach activities beyond Bath. We’ve been leafleting in Midsomer Norton and Keynsham. We have more locations in our sights. Our colleagues in Bradford-on-Avon are growing their team and speaking to their fellow residents.

We have fun and exciting events coming up this month. Banish the January blues with our comedy evening headlined by Viv Groskop, supported by young talent, at the Widcombe Social Club on Wednesday, 17th January. Book your tickets here.

Journalist Hugo Dixon, founder of Infacts, will be speaking on Thursday 1st February, followed by our new members meeting, also at the Widcombe Social Club. Book your tickets here.

Check our Facebook pages for details of all our events and come along. Now is NOT the time to sit on the side lines. Stand up with us and make history!

Please join us now!


The Spirit of
Bath for Europe

This short film captures the positive spirit of Bath for Europe, one of the UK’s most active local groups campaigning for Britain to remain in the European Union. It is part of Britain for Europe. The 100% volunteer group in the vibrant heritage city of Bath has 1,000 supporters. It holds regular events and does lots of outreach to keep the cause in public awareness. One of its members created The Original Bath Beret which has become a symbol of the UK Remain movement. This film was made by Bath for Europe supporter Simon Campbell-Jones.
