    Hi

     

    We're hoping to move in the summer- just awaiting medicals and the final YES!!. We also live in the West Midlands can't wait for sunnier climbs. Love to talk about OZ all my friends and family are fed up of listening to us.

     

    Good luck

    :roll:

    Hiya

     

    We're in Solihull. We've just sent our meds & PC's off so hope to have an answer so that we can go June/July. Are you anywhere near here? Wouldn't say no to meeting up but we're getting married in 8 weeks (and there's so much to do...), so probably best for us after that...let us know if you do want to arrange something.

    Hi All,

     

    We are in Brierley Hill, and would love to meet up with anyone who is currently going through the same stress as us. We have just got through the skills assessment and are about to send off to our agent the SA sponsorship, so still a long way to go and hoping to go towards the end of the year.

     

    Please advise the best time and place and we will be there.

     

    Thanks

    Skills assessment approved Yippee!!! :lol:

    Thanks for the "good luck" msgs!

     

    I'll keep looking in on this and as lazymazy suggests lets wait a couple of weeks and then get together - maybe somewhere in/near Bromsgrove would be handy for most folks as a halfway point?

    Hi all,

     

    We are in Burton on trent so not a million miles from west mids. We wouldn't mind a jaunt up the A38, please keep us in mind for anything you organise.

     

    Thanks, hope to see you soon.

    Hi all,

     

    That date in April works for us, our oldest son is having an operation on his shoulder in a few weeks, but he'll be out of plaster by then. Daytime would be better for us too as the kids will be tagging along (hope thats alright :) ).

     

    See ya.

    hello there all you midlanders - we too would love to join you all in a meet up... our visas are through and we activated them in November on a reccy trip - hope to be out there for real in October. New baby due in 6 weeks but if you all get chance to meet up before then, it'd be great to be involved. We're in Worcester, so Bromsgrove is fine by us :D

    D'oh! That will teach me not to read message threads properly... 21st April would be fine for us, assuming nobody minds little babies tagging along :lol:

    Hi

     

    Saturday 21st April - sounds great - Daytime if great and definitely non-smoking. Will be bringing our two girls aged 10 and 7.

     

    Bromsgrove is great for us, we dont know it well - so, can you suggest a meeting place?

     

    Really looking forward to meeting others in similar circumstances to us.

     

    We booked our flights yesterday - flying out on 15th August. Did originally want July, but the price was a few hundred pounds more and this way we can afford to have a nice bread in Singapore for 5 days before arriving in Adelaide.

     

    Speak soon

    Hiya

     

    There are a few pubs that I see when I go back to B'grove, although I haven't been to them for years:

     

    The Marlbrook (on the A38 on right hand side just before you get to The Hilton);

    The Guild, which looks quite big from the outside (opposite direction down the A38 towards Bromsgrove);

    The Forest (it's a Harvester pub) which is at Junction 1 of the M42/A38.
