BREXIT protesters formed a human chain in Cheltenham today, to express their wish to remain in the European Union.

The pro-EU campaigners assembled on the Promenade, outside Cavendish House, at 11am for an hour-long demonstration.

This was the first event to bring together pro-EU action groups from across Gloucestershire.

The idea for the ‘Chain to Remain’ came from Cheltenham campaigner Sarah Daly, who visited London on February 14 and created a human chain outside the Houses of Parliament.

She is now hoping that other pro-EU groups across the country will follow suit and create chains in their communities.

“Cheltenham for Europe was delighted to host the first county-wide chain in Gloucestershire this morning,” she said.

“The weather was fantastic and we had an excellent turn out, with lots of positive comments from passers-by.

“After the chain, we handed out chalk to create a giant piece of street art.

“We asked everyone to draw or write a message to their MP, or to Theresa May or any of the political leaders. ”

“In the end, we completely covered the Promenade in street art.”

The idea of #Chain2Remain is gathering support with remainers nationally.

“If it does take off nationally, it will be exciting to know that it all started in Cheltenham,” added Sarah.
