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...

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
