As I mentioned last week, on 31st January I celebrated Brexit day by ringing my bell and proclaiming outside Gloucester Railway Station. The day started as it meant to go, with Nigel Farage and Ann Widdecombe sharing a message to Gloucester, and local business, Café Rene, hosting an evening Brexit buffet.

Gloucester’s Brexit Party candidate, Richard Ford, organised the soiree at Café Rene, which saw diners indulging on global delicacies – all in anticipation of potential trade deals around the world.

But, of course, as momentous a day as this was, for some it was rather tinged with sadness. In Cheltenham, the group Cheltenham4Europe held a vigil outside the Municipal Buildings, while almost 100 pro-Europe campaigners gathered on the Promenade to mark the event.

I think, whatever your opinion on Brexit, we’ll all be glad to move on and see what the future has in store for our brilliant United Kingdom.
