  1. Hi Alicia, I have "met" your other half on here :biggrin: Fancy coming to live the other side of the world and finding another Midlander just down the road (by Aussie standards hehe)?! I am definately keen to catch up with you guys for a beer! There does seem to be a few pommes in our "south of Coffs" area so maybe we could try and organise an open to all bbq too? now that the weather is finally behaving (hope I havent just jinxed us there!!) Hope to see ya soon, Selina

    Mid North Coast NSW

    Hi there, Im living in Valla and work in Macksville! Beautiful spot eh, although whats going on with the weather lately?! Almost forgot i emigrated :wink:

    <p> </p>

    <p><p>Great to hear from you! I know Worcestershire very well, I used to live in Herefordshire for a while and used to work in St Peter's Worcester out of the BT building. I have been here in Oz for 3.5 years and love the location although the weather has not been great of late!</p></p>

    <p><p>I have been lucky to get a job here in the area as there is not much about in and around coffs or at least should I say there is not much in the way of Project Manager type work, I have managed to secure a full time job at Woolies in Toormina, which is a world apart from what I was used to!! We should meet up at some point for a coffee or a barby or something, always great to catch up with people from back home, today I was speaking to someone in Woolies who was from Brum that had just moved to Coffs having lived in WA for the last 20+ years, her hubby was in mining? they have now relocated to Coffs for a better life.</p></p>

    <p><p>Anyway keep in touch and maybe when you are free sometime we could have a coffee or a beer!</p></p>

  4. Hi Soph, You must now be here! Welcome to the beuatiful Nambucca Valley! I live in Valla and work in Macksville. How are you getting on? Would be great to catch up if youre settled and feel like a chat over a drink at the Star or a coffee down River Street. Hope youre getting on okay, the move went well and to hear from you soon :-) Selina

    <p><p>Hello, sorry for the delay in responding, I havent been on here for ages, I lost interest a bit due to the lack of people local! I dont actually live in Coffs Harbour, I live in Valla Beach and I see you are in Urunga - just up the road! (by Aussie standards) </p></p>

    <p><p>I come from Worcestershire from the UK so not too from from your roots either black country lad!</p></p>

    <p><p>I am enjoying being on the Mid North Coast, how about you? How long have you been here?</p></p>

    <p> </p>



    <p> </p>

    <p><p>Hi just wondering if you are still living in Coffs and where you are from in the UK?</p></p>

    <p><p> and how life's treating you out here? always good to here it from someone who knows the local area..</p></p>

    Coffs Coast

    Hi Maria, Thanks for the reply. How exciting that you are getting ready for the big move! I can imagine how much you have to organise, I came over on my own so it was slightly easier. I will give you any advice I can, I have gotten to know the area pretty well and my Aunt has lived here for 30+ years now so theres not much she doesnt know! Although I dont have children yet, I work with plenty of people who do, so I get to hear about school and the various kids activites that go on. I know a few good places for coffee so would be great to catch up when you get here. You will be arriving at a great time of year weather wise :biggrin: Thanks again for the message and let me know if I can help with anything/you have any questions about Coffs Selina :0)
  14. Hi guys :hug: Nice to hear other some other young single pommey girls plans and expereinces! I am 27, been in Australia for 3 years now and after spening most of my time in the NT, I am now up the East Coast from sydney in Coffs Harbour, which is a beautiful spot but I have found it really hard to make friends here so am thinking of moving back to a City and am thinking of Sydney. I currently work a 9 day fortnight so could easily come down for a weekend if we arrange an ex-pat meet up for all the posters on this thread? Seems like there will be a few of us and maybe a group meet will be eaiser? (Ive never done anything like meet ups before but it sounds fun!) :biggrin: Selina
