hi there

 

typical that i just spotted this site the day after a meet up :-( Did you have a good time?! Are there plans for another meet up soon do you know?

 

I think you guys are around the same age as myself and my partner - we just moved out about a month ago, would be good to meet up with you both at some point

Hi we have just moved to Melbourne, Elwood a couple of months ago and would love to meet up with some fellow poms. Just been reading about your recent meet ups and I was wondering if you guys have anything planned soon.

Hiya, the group is full of 26-30 couples, we are all going out in a couple of weeks i think, nic1983 is the usual organiser (especially for new people - the group mother hen :o) ). probably best to message her on here. Nice to hear from you.

The next Britvic meet with be in March, so a great day out especially if you have children who want to meet new friends.


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Hiya, same as the posts above - we regularly get together (they got together this weekend for a cocktail party at nic's house which we couldnt go to due to work) so will keep you posted. again Nic is the best one to tell you if something is going on. I know we will get together before the end of March as thats when we move on to NZ and then off around oz.

Cheers

Tom

Can you tell me when in April the park meet will be? We are in Melbourne for a Recce/visa validation trip, we will arrive on the 5th and staying in Melbourne til the 12 before flying up to Brisbane to visit old family friends. Think it would be good for our two children (15 and 12) give them a chance to socialise with some other kids.

Thanks

Joanna

I suppose I could try & make it Saturday 11th April although I think that might be Easter weekend.

I guess we could have a meet up for those not going away for Easter.

I think I could waddle along with Mark & my visiting Mum, I might pack the hospital bag just in case!! It's only 5 minutes from us with a nice park for the kids and areas to BBQ and plenty of room for a kickabout or cricket and now a new skate ramp. I think it's called Beazley Reserve, just off the Nepean Highway down Thames Prom

Pretty sure, Google also says Beazley but another map says Bicentennial Park - they are the same place, it's basically on the corner of Thames Prom and Scotch Parade, there is car parking and toliets.

Hello

Unfortunately we are in Nrth Eltham that day visiting an old collegue of my hubby's, But thank you for trying to fit in around our dates. I was just interested when the meet would be as if it had fitted in with our stay would liked to have tried to get one of these meets in. My OH and I feel that our two children need to see that other children can/have settled into a new type of lifestyle and schooling. If we don't make it in April I hope to join you later in the year.

Ok thanks for that Jo, I might make it the week after then so those going away for Easter weekend can attend. I'll put a new post up soon once everything is in place.
