Our Mission

As a town, Cheltenham voted 56% Remain and most recent polls now put this at 62%.  Cheltenham For Europe is a grassroots, cross-party group dedicated to remaining in the European Union.  Our current mission is to secure a People’s Vote with the option to Remain.

We believe that:

  • It is in the UK’s political, economic and social interests to remain part of the most progressive and democratic regional intergovernmental organisation in history
  • Young people and future generations of British citizens should have the best possible prospects for their education and their careers as citizens of a free and united Europe
  • British society will continue to prosper from the close interaction and exchange of goods, ideas and culture that we have with the rest of the EU member states
  • The EU embodies the values that we recognise as British values, including democracy, justice, tolerance, collaboration, human rights and the rule of law
