MEET A MEMBER - DAMIEN SHIELDS

Meet a Member: Damien ShieldsMeet Damien Shields from Dublin Ireland who moved to LA almost 9 years ago to pursue a new life in LA. Was there a particular reason you chose LA?  Yes, I had been visiting here since 1994, to visit my two sisters and older brother who left in the late 1980s when the mass exodus was happening in Ireland. They settled here in the Valley and have been here ever since. So the expat community that they found and made their family away from home, became mine by default as the years passed. When I decided to come here in 2008, I just wanted to see how the other half lived, and I was fed up with the rain in Ireland- it wasn’t helping my golf game at all! Being that I’m from Ireland, I am so happy to be accepted as part of the Brits in LA community. I have many relatives in the UK and worked for many UK companies in my time, so I know a thing or two about the British folk….and I know we all share a similar sense of humor, considering that Only Fools And Horses’ is p…

UK expats – don’t miss out, you may be able to vote in the General Election



Today the UK Electoral Commission has launched a day of dedicated activity to encourage UK citizens living overseas to register to vote ahead of the UK Parliamentary General Election on Thursday 8 June.
With just over one month until the election, the Commission is advising UK expats to register sooner rather than later, to be sure they are registered in time to have their say. Expats can now apply to register online in just a few minutes at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
At the 2015 General Election there were almost 106,000 overseas voters on the register, three times the number on the register ahead of the previous poll in 2010. Last year, the record was surpassed and there were nearly 264,000 registered overseas voters at December 2016.
Craig Westwood, Director of Communications at the Electoral Commission said:
“At the 2016 EU Referendum, local authorities received 5,143 late registration applications from ov…
