The British Association of Nice
The British Association of Nice is an association under the law of 1901.
It was first registered on the 30th November 1957 to enable a group of volunteers to carry out welfare work, helping British residents and visitors who were in need of assistance in the region.
Hospitality was also provided for the officers and crew of British naval vessels visiting the Riviera, football and cricket matches and trips were organized for them to places of interest
Throughout the years, the British Association has acted as a conduit for assistance that the Consular offices in Marseille and Nice cannot provide.
Formerly part of the British Association of the Alpes Maritimes, the British Association of Nice is now an independent association.
We help those in need and also organise social and cultural events in Nice and the region at which new friends can be made, and common interests shared.
We believe in putting people and social needs together is a pleasure and worthwhile.
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?
