York European City

keeping international

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...

Volunteer and have fun at St Nicks    

Our next monthly volunteering session with St Nicks at Heworth Holme will be on the morning of Friday 24th September - usual time and place, meeting at the Scout Hut on Bad Bargain Lane at 10.30 am and looking out for Maria Gill from St Nicks. After the (no doubt weather-related) low turnout last month we have decided to introduce a sign up sheet for these sessions. This will enable Maria to bring the right amount of equipment for us. This is important as she transports it all from St Nicks to Heworth Holme on a cycle-trailer which is hard going when loaded up with heavy gardening implements (especially if they don't even get used!) So from now on please indicate on this sign-up sheet when you intend to join.

Rachael Maskell, MP for York Central:

   The negotiation framework in the EU/UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement gives us an opportunity to build a strong and creative relationship with the EU and we should work together to now shape that future.
   Having a source of information in York is so important for us to look at this from a local perspective.”

Cllr Keith Aspden, Leader of the City of York Council, comments:

    We may no longer be members of the European Union, but York and the UK will always be part of Europe. Our futures, like our histories, remain inevitably intertwined.
    We must make sure we work together with our European partners to support our businesses and residents through what continues to be a very challenging time for us all.”

An individual has a right to seek asylum anywhere in the world. In practice it is easier in some places than others....

The EU Rights and Brexit Hub is the first of its kind: a nation-wide, legal action research hub. It is an interdisciplinary, inter-institutional, multi-method three-year project investigating how Brexit affects the social rights of EU/EEA nationals in the UK. It is funded by an ESRC large Governance After Brexit Grant.
