We are sharing for readers who are seeking the latest facts and information with the approval of the BRS, news recently provided by the British Residents’ Society to their members on 5th April 2022.
Meeting with the BHC
On Tuesday 4th April, representatives of the BRS met with his Excellency the British High Commissioner Irfan Siddiq and his staff at Shakespeare House, Lefkosa to discuss the current lobbying campaign which continues to gather momentum. We reiterated that this was not a political action but was being driven on humanitarian grounds.
The meeting was informative with different views being discussed in an open and friendly atmosphere. During the visit the High commissioner was invited to attend a meeting with expats in North Cyprus and to hear their views and concerns. Mr Saddiq said he would welcome the chance to meet residents in the North and agreed to look for a venue with a date to be announced.

We are pleased to announce that we have a new Health & Welfare secretary. Sarah Schofield has joined our team as a co-opted member until the AGM. We welcome Sarah to the committee.
BRS have an excellent members’ Facebook page which gives information and allows members to ask questions however Facebook is excellent for sharing of information but it is no more than a stream of information and BRS found many questions were being asked time and time again so the BRS team developed BRITBOT on their website where members could retrieve information published on many past subjects.
