Just thought I would say hello and ask if there is anybody from Stoke (5 towns) sorry 6, who is going through, awaiting, or has fulfilled their dream?
I have been a member for about 18 months but only recently come back onto it now that visa application lodged. I'm 37 and a bricklayer, my wife of 12 years is Joanne 30 something (daren't put actual)ha ha I have a daughter Chloe 12, and the Krays sorry twins Callum and Ben 8. I would like to chat to discuss your experience, how you have found the move, who you recommend etc. So I look forward from hearing from someone...........anyone.
Ayup duck ow at? We're from Stoke. Just waiting for medical next week for our 176 visa (scary). What stage are you at?
Hi we are from Alsager, Stoke-on-Trent, been here nearly 4 years n love it. Best decision we have ever made. It feels like a life time getting you visa, but its worth the wait in the end. Where in Stoke are you from
Bears no resemblance to Fenton, longton burslem so come on over.
Staffordian through and through but worked the potteries for years.
Utopia it is not but certainly beats derelict bottle kilns.
Enjoy the roller Coaster
If you have any questions pm me, or look for willow1234 husband is a brickie, lovely folks may have good advice
