Wanting to organise a meet for anyone new to the area (or any oldies!) on Monday or Tuesday (sorry for short notice!) Under the guise of FTC but it is clearly not the first Tuesday of the month!

Hoping it could be a beach or a park picnic. . . . . Anyone around?

It'll be me and my three girls (aged 12, 11 and 9). Anyone. . . . .

I can do Monday (I think). It'll be me and 7 year old boy, along with possibly other 2 plus the various blow ins that seem to be around all the time at the moment!

Might be able to, but trying to fit everything in on tuesday will be a nightmare- DD is off to swim camp on weds, provided it isn't underwater. I know that sounds odd, but you wouldn't want to swim in the river atm.

A few of us are trying to get together on Monday.

A beach day it is though we are still trying to decide which one! Spoilt for choice, that's our problem!

Hope to be able to post the decision by 9am tomorrow. . . .

Collaroy - somewhere near the rock pool so the children can easily have the choice of pool or ocean without us having to move!

No-one can get there before midday so if you are coming we'll be out in the midday sun in true Brit style! Lots of sun screen and hats all round!

Hi Sorry we just missed the meet up, we are moving to Narrabeen tommorrow(21st), after spending 3 weeks in North Sydney (having left the Uk in December), and are keen to meet anyone living there or nearabouts already. We have an 11 year old daughter Nina who is missing her friends from home, and we would love to meet up with anyone who has children of a similar age. Our email is <snip>. Would also like some advice re schools in the area. Looking forward to hearing from you

Hilary and James

Hi there - I missed the meet-up too but just wanted to say that I have 3 children (boy, 14, girl 12 and girl 9) and have been living in Avalon for the past year. I would be happy to meet with any new arrivals and introduce children if you're interested. Could do Friday this week (28th).

Just a heads up to all that we will be having our regular monthly meet the second Tuesday of the month (8th) to allow kids time to settle back into school. So look out for a thread which I will start in the next fews days along the lines of Sydney FTC meet - February 2011. . . .

Keep it free!

And welcome to hsp - hope you are settling in at Narrabeen - my kids started off at Narrabeen North Public School and we were very happy with the school. Guess you need to be thinking ahead to High schools too! Come along and meet us and perhaps you'll go away with some ideas!

How about 3.00 at Bilgola Beach? We could meet by the cafe. We could then grab a takeaway coffee and let the kids mess around on the beach while we talk.
