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...

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.”
