We maintain that the UK, having left the EU, will have its best interests served by retaining a close as possible relationship with the EU, its peoples and its cultures. This site will serve as a bulletin board, a village pump, and information and interest exchange. The aim of this site it to keep alive our already close ties with the countries of Europe which, we maintain, were more easily facilitated when the UK was a member of the EU. We will also share any difficulties that arise from terminating membership and solutions to problems where they exist. Also, we will share advantages of leaving the union should they arise...

A gastronomic message from our Secretary, Martin

Dear European friends wherever you live,

50 years in europe banner

We had a good response to our request for favourite Christmas recipes from across Europe and so we’d like to repeat the invitation for Easter. Any recipes that that you associate with Easter itself or spring more generally would be welcome. We’d like to hear from Europeans whether they live in or outside the UK. Please send the ingredients list and the recipe, ideally with a pic of where you live and a pic of the food itself.

York for Europe organised a musical event in celebration of our links with our twin cities of Münster and Dijon. The event was part of the nationwide Festival of Europe. Historically, artistic and creative links between European countries have been important for cultural and economic development across the continent.

We asked our twin cities to invite local groups to record some music of their choice. We hoped the result would be an interesting mix of musical types and so it has turned out. And so it was - something for every musical taste. We played the recording for over ninety minutes; it was projected on the big screen.

If you do nothing else today, watch Femi explain, and prove with JRM's help, the flaw of Brexit....

York for Europe and the York Twinning Committees of Dijon and Münster have been working with Cllr Christian Vassie and staff of York Council to see the Twin Cities acknowledged on our welcome signs. The entire project has been financed by donations from York for Europe and the Twinning Committees. Full marks to the Council and CPMedia for a prompt and impressive job well done.
