  2. Hi gang, anyone in the Mornington area interested in getting together for a couple of drinks at the Mornington Brewery, or coffee in one of the cafe's one weekend? I'm from Oxford but have been in the Melbourne area a few years, (new to Mornington), and my other half has only been here a few months, moved from Essex. We have 2 kids, 10 & 14, and only know the people I work with in this area. I realised as I stared fondly reminiscing at the Pot Noodles, Rowntree's and Bisto in Richie's 'specialist aisle' the other day that it would be great if we could hook up with a few Poms here, and a colleague recommended this forum as a starting point

  5. Hi there. Me and my family are arriving in Perth on 1st November. We have 3 children - Beth (15), Mia (9) and Harry (4). Beth would like to make contact with teenagers of a similar age. She loves music (plays the guitar and sings), dancing, drama, the beach, parks, shopping and going on trips. We are hoping to secure a property in Currambine, Kinross, Joondalup or Ocean Reef and so if you live in one of these areas or close by, that would be ideal. I suppose the easiest and safest way for them to make contact would be directly on Facebook maybe? Could you please let me know if you can help out? Many thanks, Philip.
  6. Hi there. Me, my wife and three children (4,9, 15 years old) are meeting at Hillarys on Sat 9th November at 12pm for a picnic, drinks and fun by the beach.

Look forward to seeing you. Please let me know if you can make it. Philip

  13. Hello, we are a family of 3, looking for friendly English people to socialize with. I'm Australian, but my partner is from the UK and is getting quite homesick (and subsequently, on my nerves). We have a 1.5 year old son, who is adorable and very social. We happened to be the first ones in our circle to have a child, so feeling a bit left out from the bondi party scene, and in need of meeting new people, with children or without. I'm your typical girly girl, 29 yo, shopping, heels and wine; partner's into his fishing, tennis, boats and cars, he's 30. Hit us up if you fancy a coffee or a wine/beer. :wubclub:

  15. Hi all, I am located in Melbourne East, I have just joined PIO today - I am looking for social groups for my brother and myself to join. I have been in Aus since 1991 and have settled with a wife etc and have friends that I have met through high school. My brother moved here from Colchester a lot later, (2002) and has seriously struggled to meet people of his own kind that he can share common interests with. He is 39 years old, a brick layer by trade, has two staffies and enjoys a drink on the weekends. He also enjoys his music and has his own turn tables that he mixes on. Being in his late twenties when he moved to Australia and working in the building trade he has struggled to meet people that have the same interests as him and in turn tends to have little enthusiasm for anything now a days. I think often that there MUST be other people out there that have had the same issues settling into the 'Aussie' life style and meeting like minded people. If any one has ideas on social gathering or sites that we could maybe look at to help my brother settle in I would be very much appreciative. Cheers Dodgekya

    new to melbourne!

    Well technically we have been here since August, but only just got round to joining this site. Settled in nicely - living in Cheltenham, good train service and close to beach and Southland shopping complex, so good location for us. Our 1 year old is loving having a garden! great to think we are paying the same rent for a 3 bed house with garden as we were for a tiny 1 bed flat in London :biglaugh: Be great to catch up with some poms, especially now The Ashes are here (although not looking so great so far, which is a major bummer!) I work in the city, so if there are any meet ups for lunch or a after work for summery drinks, love to come along.
