Brexit Cafe: Bridging The Divide, One Cup At A Time

Following the success of our December launch, a radical new initiative called “Brexit Café” is being held again. This bi-monthly event aims to help build bridges between those on either side of the highly charged and emotive Brexit debate. Everyone will be welcome to drop in for a free tea or coffee and a chat.

 There will be the possibility to discuss things in a calm and friendly environment. Come and share a ‘cuppa’ with us and exchange opinions with those from both sides of the Brexit debate.

At a time when society has never been more divided, the aim of the initiative is to bring those from both sides of the debate together over a cup of tea or coffee in order to encourage them to engage in a constructive dialogue by listening to and reaching an understanding of each other’s point of view.

The Café is intended to bring remainers and leavers together, to talk together and find common ground. Hopefully, in this way a better understanding will be achieved and, even if any disagreement continues, it will be a more constructive one with mutual respect shown on either side.

The organisers, Sophie Clausen & Manuela Perteghella, say, “We would like the Brexit Café to contribute to healing the wounds which have been inflicted on the social cohesion of our beautiful town and district, during and after the EU Referendum. The Café aims to provide a calm and friendly environment in which this can be achieved.

So, do pop in for a friendly chat over a free cup of tea or coffee!”

The event is being supported by Stratford4Europe which is a local, cross-party, grass- roots organisation campaigning for Britain to play a leading role within a strong and united European Union.
