North Herts for Europe campaigning group held an action day in Hitchin town centre on Saturday, surveying residents on their Brexit opinions.
A team of 13 volunteers gathered in Market Place for an hour-and-a-half, allowing people to vote on their preferred outcome.
The campaigners’ ‘Brexitometer’ saw 74 per cent in favour of staying in the EU, while 16 per cent wanted to leave with no deal.
A further eight per cent responded with ‘don’t know’, and only two per cent expressed support for Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal.
The group also managed to recruit 45 new members.
