    We're not that far on - actually very early in the process. However, there is a small chance we could be there within 6 months of you, so I'll bear you in mind when we are hopefully a bit further on. We're in Bury, but both of us have lived in Halifax and Huddersfield in the past, so Leeds is not too far. If you don't mind me asking, what are your occuptions, and your visa type?

    Hi

     

    we arrived in September on a 495 visa , we also lived in ossett so there are two things in common already , its great here , the lifestyle is brilliant but the 495 has financial issues which you need to be prepared for in the first couple of years before you can get a full visa , saying that we would still not go home...

     

    hopefully we can meet up when you get here , and any questions you have just fire away

    Hi Steph

     

    Many apologies for not replying sooner prob with computer!.I know of two more families who have just left Ossett to go to Australia but not Adelaide. It feels really nice to know theres someone from good old Ossett to catch up with when we finally get there. Where about's have you settled and how easy did you find it to get a job?

    Hi Lisa

     

    Sorry for not getting back to you problems with our computer. We are about to submit our visa then may have a reccie just the two of us (if we can get away with it ) late this year early next. Would be really nice to meet up and hear your side of the migration process. I know where 'The Phesant' is if you would like to meet for a couple of hours one Friday or Saturday teatime/early evening or maybe one of the bars near 'the showcase'

    Hi Lisa and Aaron, We received our visas in December and are considering moving to Adelaide although still undecided as we have never been to Adelaide although went to Australia last year and loved it and we are going again in May to decide where to live. I really liked Melbourne although more expensive to live and climate not as good as Adelaide. We live in Barrowford near Nelson, Burnley. Dont know if you know where that is and would be interested in meeting up if you fancy it at some point. My husband Shaun is a joiner also and we have two children aged 9 and 11. Dont know if you have any info on wages etc that a joiner can expect to earn out there? I have looked at a few job sites but most dont specify wages/salary and it seems to vary quite a lot from some i have looked at. Shaun is quite worried about being able to earn a decent living without having to work as hard as he does now and seems to be getting cold feet so i am loking forward to going back in May and then he will remember why we wanted to go in the first place! Hopefully speak soon, Nicolette

    Hi there....

     

    Nice to hear from you.

     

    As you can see we have some stuff in common with jobs and kids and stuff.

     

    So when and where would you like to meet up so we can exchange all sorts of stuff, it would be great to get to know some folk before we go then also it would cushion the shock over there if there is some familiar faces if you know what i mean.

    Hi everyone ,

    Hope your all havin a good weekend!! As you can see there are quite a few of us that would like to meet for a chat which is great !!

     

    Date wise how does either saturday 22nd march sound or sat 05 april.. Was thinking we could meet mid afternoon maybe 1 or 2 o'clock, as for places was thinking of the brickworks pub (just of junction 27 of the M62) which will be good with or without the kids as there is a play area to keep them occupied !

     

    As mentioned in a few posts we are pretty flexible so if anyone can think of anywhere different and want to meet earlier or a little later just let me know

     

    Looking forward to meeting everyone
