Citizenship Ceremonies are where new citizens are formally granted their citizenship of the United Kingdom. They are organised by the Registrar on behalf of the Home Office and in East Dunbartonshire, the Provost and a representative of the Lord Lieutenant of Dunbartonshire play an important role in conducting these ceremonies and welcoming new citizens to the United Kingdom and in particular East Dunbartonshire.
The Provost’s Office provides support to the Provost and co-ordinates the organisation of civic functions, including applications for civic receptions received from community, businesses and other local organisations.
Civic Receptions are hosted by the Provost to recognise groups or individuals who have achieved something in our area or to welcome foreign visitors or businesses to generate investment in our area.
