We aren't too far away in Leamington but will be moving North to live with parents in about a month's time once the house completes. So if you can organise it soon we could be there.

Having helped organise a few meets I have to say it is very easy. Just pick somewhere convenient for the main roads, preferably that has a Wacky Warehouse and post a thread on here suggesting a date. Sunday afternoons are most popular but if you want to make it a Saturday night a Premier Travel Inn is a good bet as they are nearly always attached to a restaurant. You don't need to organise tables for dinner or anything but it might be a politeness to advise the pub if you expect loads of people. They are usually very informal (getting used to the Aussie way!)

Finally, Iain's top tip: Make sure someone wears a VB t-shirt(my favourite), carries a blow up kangaroo (karenjc) an Aussie flag etc or no one knows who to say hello to. Learnt that one painfully last time

Good luck!

[QUOTE=Jane and Russ Middleton]Hi all ,

Hi, We would like to come, not really local though as we are in Cheltenham but would be good to meet people. We are 5 With 3 boys 1,7 and 8. Anyone know how long it would take in the car?

Any dates in mind yet? I'm afraid we can only do Sundays (Daytime).

If you need any help just let me know.

Georgina & Mick

Nice to hear there are like minded people nearby. We are in Yaxley not to far from Northampton. Would be great to meet up with new people on the same adventure as us. I have hubby and 2 girls 10/16, oh yes we are into the awkward teenage years.

Maybe a meet with all these hormonal girls is NOT such a good idea

Hmm, I could possibly throw a hormonal 15yr old boy into the group! Along with a 12 yr old boy and a 9 yr old girl.

We are between MK and Northampton, and could be interested.

They are usually ok if they get what they want, have their mobile phones and there are plenty of boys around.

My 10 year old on the otherhand is an angel in comparison.

Seriously for a minute though it would be good for the kids to meet other families in the same situation, I know my 16 year old is wavering at the moment a year ago she was all for living in Aus. :scared:

My 11 year old is fine about it but the 14 year old won't even talk about it. She won't even want to go to the meet but it would be good for her to talk to other teenagers in the same situation
