Citizenship Welcoming

Union flag

For several years now we have provided a welcome for new citizens at the ceremonies in Lewes, Crowborough and Brighton. 

The ceremonies are solemn but the Mothers’ Union welcome with tea and cakes afterwards is fun, touching, family oriented and multicultural, as people from a great variety of origins and cultures get together to celebrate an important rite of passage in their lives.

Whether the group of new citizens and their families is big or small, whether the ceremonies happen regularly every month or just when they are needed, we have a chance to meet new people, share in their joy and above all listen to their stories.
