    The British Embassy in Paris have circulated the following:

    British citizens living abroad are now eligible to register to vote in UK general elections, regardless of how long they’ve been living outside the UK. A new law has removed the previous 15-year time limit.

    Supporting the awareness raising campaign of the UK’s Electoral Commission, the British Embassy in Paris is calling on British residents living in France to check if they are eligible. The Commission is the independent and impartial organisation that oversees elections in the UK.

    Those who have previously lived in or been registered to vote in the UK now have the right to vote in UK parliament elections. They can register online at and will need to confirm their personal information every three years. Anyone on a UK electoral register is also considered a permissible donor to UK political parties and campaigners.

    Menna Rawlings, British Ambassador to France said:

    “I am delighted that this change in UK law means that more British citizens living abroad are now eligible to vote in UK Parliament elections. This really matters to Brits in France, so please spread the word and encourage people to register in time for the next UK general election. It only takes five minutes, and it’s also possible to apply online to vote by post or proxy.”

    Applicants will need to provide details of the address and time they were last registered or resident. Local authorities must be able to verify an applicant’s identity and past connection to the area.

    More information is available on the Electoral Commission’s website. Voters living overseas can find contact details for the relevant local council by entering the postcode of the last place they lived in the UK, using the Commission’s postcode lookup tool.

    Resources for raising awareness are available on the Commission website.

    On Wednesday 27th September 2023 at St Johns Church, St Raphael Dr Levecque (a well known sport therapist) very kindy took time out of his very busy work schedule to give us his expertise and a presentation on the very complex subject of Arthritis,

    Having been treated myself in the past by Dr Levecque for several foot problems, he certainly knows his stuff, his ondes de choc treatment albeit painful has put me back on track,

    Amongst other things we found out how to cope (got to keep moving) , the awareness of alternative solutions :BalneotherapyCure ThermalesAquagym in warm water are to name but a few as apparently we all have Arthritis in on our bodies. Dr Levecque also mentioned not to ‘put off’ an operation,

    A copy of Dr Levecque’s powerpoint presentation is available by email on request, contact me Johanna Matthews on
