Hertford and Stortford featured in The Observer, in article on Brexit

The Observer for 22 Jan has a super article by Patrick Maguire on reactions to Brexit in East Herts, particularly in the light of Theresa May's speech on 17 Jan. In it, one of our new members, Louie Corpe, is interviewed, talking about the shock of Brexit and what's happened since.
