hello,

 

We're arranging a meet up in Wynnum at the small water park on the Esplanade (the one with the whales spouting water) on the 23rd October if anyone fancies it. It is open to anyone and everyone who is in or around Brisbane and wants to meet up with like minded people for a chit chat and possible friendship. Just come along. Its posted up on the socialising and get togethers forum and will be adding it to the calendar soon if I haven't already. There is a small park there and some bbq's so we're asking everyone to bring a little bit of food with them and we can all have a great time.

 

Sx

Hi there I was wondering if the meet up at wynumm was mainly going to be people with young families?? My husband,Graham and myself,Joanne, live in Manly and would love the chance to meet up with some fellow Brits. We are both 50 and have a grown up family and a 3 year old grandson. Just don't want to feel like 2 oldies pushing our way in. Lol :biggrin:

Hi Soapyjo...this is an old thread. The meet up was in 2010!

 

I'm going to lock this thread in case anyone else thinks its happening in a few weeks.
