    Birmingham & Midlands Invitation

    This is a open invitation, to those especially from the Birmingham and Midlands Region to casual drinks at the Watermark Hotel Glenelg, 1 May at 7:00pm.

    (please be aware that this is not a booked function area, we will be gathering in the beer garden area, children can be in this area only if they are supervised at all times the Hotel informs me)

     

    This gathering will be the first in some time, a long time between drinks as the saying goes…

     

    Background on the Birmingham & Midland Group The Birmingham & Midland Group was established in 2006, this small group afternoon picnic, soon grew with other functions in various location around Adelaide into what has be come quite a large number of people. The word of BMG soon spread, with requests to attend our functions coming from wide and far, it wasn't long before local and U.K. radio stations were requesting interviews. It was soon realised that the individuals and families attending arrived in Adelaide at various times some back in the late 50's and others within a day or two of before attending their first function.

     

    The purpose and philosophy of the Birmingham & Midlands Group Firstly it is to have a laugh with memories and stories over drinks and/or food with fellow migrants whether they be old or new arrivals, however what has become a vital and most important role for the group is that at times we serve as a first point of contact to new arrivals helping them put down their roots and giving support at this very stressful time, as we all know.

     

    I should mention and make it clear that by name, The Birmingham and the Midlands Group does attract a large number people from these area's, however the last thing we would want is to become exclusive and this is why this is why this is an open invitation to all.

    I was born and brought up in Woodsetton - which is just past Coseley. What a small World!

     

    I have just seen this thread, which means we missed the meet. :(

     

    That's a shame as my husband is looking for fellow Wolves fans. He's from Halesowen though...

    What a very small world, I used to live on Hockley Road before moving to Hurst Hill. Went to Bramford and High Arcal. Spent many an evening hanging round the petrol station on Sedgley Road when I was younger. What your name and how old are you? Are you over here now or still in UK.
