Brexit Meeting 15 January

For those of you who were not able to attend the event here is an update.

The meeting was arranged by the mayor of St Yrieix la Perche in order to give advice to British people, resident in France, regarding their rights following Brexit. Connect87 was asked to publicise the event. The mayor was concerned that the meeting would not be well attended hence the reason for using the Espace Ferraud.  Thanks to the power of social media his fears were unfounded and the next meeting, which will probably be in April, will be held in a larger venue.

The mayor was keen to state that the British are very welcome in France and that he is looking to help them stay, in any way he can.

Representatives from the Limoges Prefecture were present and gave some advice but many of the points raised will only be answerable once a deal is agreed between the EU and the UK.

We will give you more information regarding the next meeting when we receive it but, in the meantime, there is a French government website which is very useful.  This can be found at and there is a link from there to the English language version.
