I will let you know if I find anything of importance during my research.
It's strange how things sometimes work out and I wouldn't be at all surprised if I do get to meet you one day.
All the best with everything

My only advice to all you guys - is to get here fast. When we came over here 19 months ago , there were a lot of printing jobs advertised and hubby and his mate- who's a printer - had their pick of the jobs. However we have met loads of printers (print finishers, print managers) who have emmigrated in the last year - jobs are fewer in the paper, and I know a few companies that used to have a regular turn over of staff - now no longer advertise as so many brits are now working for them.
It is getting tougher as the brits are flooding the market.
