On 31st January, as the UK leaves the EU, we will be holding a #ThankEU party to thank the remaining 27 EU countries and their citizens for the many ways in which they have enriched our lives. You are cordially invited to join us in our celebrations.
Undoubtedly for those of us who have fought tirelessly for this day never to come, 31st January will be a sad day representing a huge loss for the UK. Despite our sadness, we want to take this opportunity to focus on all that has been great about decades of membership of the EU, and particularly the many ways in which EU27 citizens living in this country have enriched so many lives: They have inextricably enmeshed their lives with ours, building families, friendships and careers in this country, creating generations of truly European citizens and a rich cultural legacy that cannot be disentagled simply by leaving the EU.
So, to say #ThankEU, we will be putting on a party, with European buffet food provided by our members, and a few drinks, too. We will have music originating from all over Europe and we will celebrate everything the EU has brought us over the years. Join us in this celebration of unity and friendship!
We particularly welcome citizens of EU27 countries to our party – it doesn’t matter if you have never heard of us or attended any of our meetings. This is our #ThankEU to you for being here. We’d love for you to join us!
