Europe Day Celebrations

Throughout the UK picnics are being organised to celebrate Europe Day. We have chosen the historic Cadbury Castle, reputed home of the legendary King Arthur, as our picnic location. Please join us on Sunday 14th May to celebrate peace and unity throughout Europe. Please invite your family and friends, bring your favourite picnic food and let’s celebrate Europe.

For more information please see the poster or send us an email.

For more information about Europe Day Picnics in other areas please see the Greenwich For Europe website.

Unite for Europe

We thank everyone who travelled to join over 100,000 others at the much-needed and inspiring Unite for Europe march in London. We loved meeting everyone from Somerset – both on the coach, wonderfully organised by Frome Labour for Europe, and those who found our banner during the day. We cannot imagine a more positive and appropriate way to celebrate of the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome.

We have put together a photo gallery of a few of the images from the march. If you would like to add your photographs to the gallery then please email them to us.

On Wednesday 29 March 2017, Theresa May  triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty – the single most destructive political act of almost all of our lifetimes. If we believe that the future of both Britain and Europe will be better (more peaceful and prosperous) standing together, then the people of Somerset must be brave enough to say so! We warmly invite everyone who has already discovered Somerset LOVEs Europe to encourage all of your pro-European Somerset friends, relatives, colleagues and neighbours to join us here.

Who’s going to the march?

Are you going to the Unite for Europe march in London on Saturday the 25th of March? If so, please join us and others from Somerset. We are meeting at the Wellington Arch (W1J 7JZ) between 10 and 10:30. If you would like to get in touch, prior to Saturday, just drop us an email. There is also a coach leaving Frome railway station at 7:30am.

Sixty years ago in Rome, the foundations were laid for the Europe that we know today, ushering in the longest period of peace in written history in Europe. The Treaties of Rome established a common market where people, goods, services and capital can move freely and created the conditions for prosperity and stability for European citizens. For 60 years Europe has had a Union that promotes peaceful cooperation, respect of human dignity, liberty, democracy, equality and solidarity among European nations and peoples. On the anniversary, 25th March, lets celebrate 60 years of peace, the achievements of the EU and also send a message that we wish to remain EU citizens.
