Mum meet ups - North Brisbane(North Lakes)

Recommended Posts

Guest suz101

Hi i have recently moved to North Lakes just a few weeks ago and was looking for anyone in a similiar situation that would like to meet other mums in the area for a meet up with the kids and a coffee. I have looked for mother n toddler groups in North Lakes where mums to be can go but so far cant find any. I have a five year old little boy who has just started prep and i am due my second baby in April so ideally would like to meet up with mums with children of similiar ages so the kids can play together. If u fancy meeting up let me know:smile:

Hi there,

 

I live in Bracken Ridge, we have been in Brisbane for a year now. I'm having my first baby in april, would be great to meet up. Where are you having your baby and when in April are you due?

Hi, I am a mum to be in Redcliffe and I would love to meet up and have a coffee with someone who has had a baby over here. I'm 34, lived away from UK for 8 years and never felt so homesick before. It would be so good to meet up with other mums to have a laugh and get some advice. Please let me know if this would be okay! Take care, Fay

Hello. Friend Sue & I (& husbands) started a 'migrant get-together/bbq' in Jan '13 (Sue arrived Sept '12 & lives in NL). We had the second yesterday & it was a great natter time. The next will be in 3 months' time - probably July. Let me know if you'd like details. Pat Whitelaw

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Hi Susan,

 

Welcome to Brisbane, we too have only been here for 6m and understand what you are going through. We live in Murrumba Downs and have a 4.5 year old boy starting prep in Jan and his older sister 7. My husband works full time and so time for me is no issue ATM. Let me know if you need anything or wish to get together.

We are new to the north lakes area of only 6 weeks and missed the last meet up so we will definitely be the in January. Look forward to meeting some new friends, especially our kids girl 10 and boy 8.

Hello.

Welcome to sunny Queensland! Sandgate's a lovely suburb - I hope you enjoy it, too. We arrange the bbq/get-togethers at North Lakes, because a lot of migrants have moved there. Of course you'd be welcome - others that come live in Scarborough and Redcliffe areas.

It'll be from 2.30pm at the Parkside bbq/park area, Aurora Boulevard, North Lakes, until you have to go. There are free bbqs, big play area for the children, toilets, playing field for the bigger kids to kick a ball, together with a small skate park (if your boys are into that). We usually get about 8 families, so it's not too big to talk to everyone and get to make new friends. Oh, bring your own everything: food, drink, chairs. We will hope to have shade at the bbqs, but bring hats, just in case (the summer sun can be quite fierce).

Look forward to seeing you. Do please ask if you want more information. Pat

Hi Susan

 

I am 39 from Manchester. We moved here last May (my fella is from Adelaide). I have 2 young ones of 2 and 7 months but would love to meet people. I'm not used to not being so anti social to be honest (without sounding like a sad sack lol).

 

 

anyhoo, if I don't sound too desperate and you have a group or something I'd love to mingle.

 

 

cheers

 

 

Mel
