Meet in Birmingham

    Recommended Posts

    Hi everyone would anybody be up for a lunchtime meet one saturday in march, in central brmingham. We thought it would be easy for most people to get by car or train. We are hoping to emigrate in april or may and would love to meet as many people as possible.

     

    Hope to see you soon

    I don't mind meeting up. Do you think it might be better to meet outside of the city near the motorway exit. If people are travelling than they will be able to find it easier.

     

    Where in Birmingham was you thinking of?

    HI all,

     

    Yes, we would be up for a meet, it really is a great way to meet people and chew over the fat. Don't mind either city or burbs, any suggestions? We have traditionally met up at the Marlbrook, Bromsgrove on the A38. It'and easy, straight off the motorway, can't get lost. On the other hand, the city sounds good - shopping opportunities for us ladies!!! Keep us posted.

    I know all you guys want to be here in adelaide, but for a night out i would love a night in brum, starting at lloyds, then onto the sports bar before finishing off in the Risa bar, unless all these bars have gone in the last couple of years...

     

    but have fun at the meet....

     

    Maybe when everyone is here have a brummy meet in glenelg, at the dublin, Salt, Pier Bar or Fizz at the beach.... with better views than broad street...

    What about the Malt House, between the NIA and the SeaLife Centre, see below. Can use the NIA/Academy car park situated just around the corner. What time folks?? Got to get the shopping trip organised to maximise the visit to Brum.

    Don't mind, I can shop anytime of the day !!!! However 2-3 does sound like a good idea, it will allow those coming from further afield the time to get there.

    Dan and mrs dan, just realised this will be the last time we will see you until we are all on the 'other side'. Is anyone bringing the flag? Otherwise we will all be sitting in the pub in diffeent areas not knowing there are 'others' out ther or worse, going around people and saying "are you a Poms?"

     

    Anyone with children, this is a great place, the National Sealife Centre is just accross the canal - ideal for kids (old and young).

     

    So are we saying THE MALT HOUSE 2 o/c KICK OFF is a definate folks?

    Hey Mall and kev,

     

    Marino is a suburb, just north of Hallet Cove, have heard its a nice place of various folk we have spoke to. We have got a 1 bedroom place there for 2 months. Got it of a site called www.realestateowners.net.au

    We may come too but as Cheltenham are playing at home that day I might have some trouble persuading Jeff.
