European Citizen's Prize 2017


In June 2017, we were delighted and honoured to be awarded the European Citizen's Prize 2017.

Thank you to Jean Lambert MEP for the nomination and to the EU for the recognition.

And of course to everybody who has contributed to Brexpats HOV and has helped us secure this award.
