    seems to be all about leaving or in transit, any oldies from the old country,settled and happy? Bit hard to meet new friends when you are new and retired.

    We've been here about 7.5 years now, and pretty settled, but not retired yet...! Occasionally have girls' get togethers in a pub over this side of town - not sure if you're male or female but if female obviously very welcome to come along to the next one - or alternatively pick a pub, pick a night and time, and post it up in the social section which is a good way of meeting a few new people. How long have you been in Parafield Gardens? Been over that sort of direction quite a lot recently as my son is in a band and that's where they practice. Have you been to the Fox n Firkin pub in Tea Tree Gully yet? "Typical" British pub (or as near as you're gonna get over here I reckon) run by a Brit (who's quite a character too) - probably a little bit of a drive from where you are, but if you're over that way ever, worth a try (they serve Guinness there too - although I'm still trying to educate Steve to keep some ribena in stock for mine!)

    There are a lot of the old ten pound poms out that way try a few of the clubs I know there is a working mans club You +1'd this publicly. Undo

    British Working Men's Club Wingfield, Adelaide. Phone: (08) 8347 4090. Elizabeth was built for the ten pound poms so try a few clubs round about that way.

    Been here 20+ years, lived in Northern Suburbs all the time. Fox N' Firkin in good, usually go to TTG Hotel for meals especially in the summer.

     

    Slug N' Lettuce ok, sort of traditional but a bit too modern compared to F N' F.

     

    Parafield Gardens has an excelllent community club, been there a number of times too.

     

    No, not retired, a few years to go though, likes Ian Mc's suggestion of the British Working Mens Club, this may be a winner for you, i didn't know it was there, will have to do a drive by one night on the way home :wink:
