TOWN HALLS across the Alicante province will be hosting a series of events with British Consul Sarah-Jane Morris to talk about Brexit and how this affects British citizens living in Spain.

Mrs Morris will be visiting the towns in the Alicante province with the highest volume of British citizens on the Padron to talk to residents about any concerns they have around Brexit and to provide an update on the progress of Brexit negotiations and respond to any questions and concerns they may have.

Four events have been confirmed in Alicante south on February 12 and 13 in the following locations:

ROJALES – February 12 at 12pm. Venue – Capitol Theatre, Calle A.Gonzalez Vergel, Rojales

TORREVIEJA – February 12 at 2pm. Venue – Ayuntamiento de Torrevieja, (3rd floor Salon de Plenos) Plaza de la Constitucion, 5, 03181 Torrevieja

PILAR DE LA HORADADA February 13 at 10am. Venue – Casa de Cultura calle Carretillas 19, Pilar de la Horadada

SAN FULGENCIO – February 13 at 1pm. Venue – Centro social, Calle Amstadam, Urbanizacion la Marina, San Fulgencio

There will be a further four events in Alicante north (Alfas de Pi, Teulada, Benidorm and Javea), details of which will be published next week.

You don’t have to be resident in these towns to attend the events; they are open for any British citizen who is interested in finding out more about the subject.

These events are part of the efforts made by British Consulates in Spain to meet with British citizens across Spain, to ensure that the concerns they raise around healthcare, pensions and residency rights are understood by the UK negotiating team and reflected in their discussions with our EU partners about our departure from the EU.
