Pontefract demands an EU referendum.
Hardworking Yorkshire activists took their EU referendum stall to Pontefract on Tuesday. As with their previous stall in Ossett the week before, the campaign received a great response.
Significantly, the petition is proving popular with both the young and old.
Wakefield Organiser Darren Lumb said: "Once again, what a fantastic response. We even got a lifelong Labour supporter to sign our petition and support our campaign."
Deputy Yorkshire Regional Organiser Danny Cooke added: "The people of Pontefract couldn't sign the petition fast enough. I had a little chat with a few market traders who are behind us 100%. I even got a few cheap gammon steaks by way of a thank you."
The team are planning two more stalls in West Yorkshire next week.
