Voisins Voices: British embassy launches newsletter for expats in France

“We hope the newsletter will benefit expats in the south, as well as all over France, and would welcome any comments or suggestions.” Voisins Voices, a quarterly newsletter for British expats living in France, was launched by the British Embassy in Paris earlier this year. The online publication was created in response to feedback from the British community requesting better communication of activities and issues that may affect them.

The first two-page edition, published in April, features an article on its front page about the embassy’s Les Voisins campaign - a story-sharing website where French and British alike can discuss their expat experiences.

The campaign itself is designed to celebrate Franco-British relations and was launched in March this year by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their first official visit to Paris.

Other topics included: Brexit (the triggering of Article 50 and what it means for Brits abroad); how to register to vote for the General Elections; and where to best access information dedicated to consular services.

The back page of the newsletter also reported on the British Embassy Tour, which highlighted Ambassador Ed Llewellyn and his team’s recent visits to meet the British communities living in and around Rennes, Bordeaux, Lille, Aix-en-Provence and Marseilles.

“We hope the newsletter will benefit expats in the south, as well as all over France, and would welcome any comments or suggestions” said a British Embassy spokesperson.

Voisins Voices will issue roughly four times a year and can be found on gov.uk.
