Also just to let everyone know that I have taken all the useful info that I have collected since we moved here almost a year ago and compiled a new migrant file which is now being held at Joondalup Public Library, in the Community Information Section (where I work), we have also put a link onto the Joondalup Council website to tell people about our group.

http://www.joondalup.wa.gov.au/cms/t...e_pg.asp?id=50 then search for migrants or click on M in the index window.

The council so far have been quite receptive to the idea of providing a free information service for new migrants and have even put a whole new section in the libraries easy links, covering the most popular subjects of migration.

http://www.joondalup.wa.gov.au/cms/t...109&mode1=full

Hopefully both the links and the file will grow in time but I need to prove there is a need for such a service, so if anyone has any ideas where I can get statistics of the numbers of new migrants to Joondalup and the northern suburbs and how I can prove this service would be of value to new migrants please let me know! I have been collecting numbers of new migrants that visit the library to use the internet facilities and talk to me about aspects of their move (which seems to be going down a treat with newbies, they really seem to appreciate seeing a friendly face and asking all those tricky questions they dont seem to be able to find the answer to!...what did you do about this, what did you do about that etc etc.) but I could do with some official figures!

I'll keep you posted on the developments at the library!
Fantastic site. I've bookmarked it already, really helpful, I finally found a Judo school for my son!

There is someone out there !......Hya, we are looking to move to somewhere near Madeley which is north of perth, although, since we went out there last march house prices have climbed by about 10%, so may need to look a little further out.
How about you, any ideas yet? or gotta place set up?

Am currently looking at the schools out there to find the best one, that will have a large part in where we finally settle down.

We are a Hairdresser (thats what got us in) and a Cash and carry manager and cannot wait to get out there and stuck in!

Mother in law has just come back after three months in Perth, pretty hot but loved every minute of it......now thinking of following the grandkids out there! :scared:

We are Bristol area too (for now anyway)! Looking at Duncraig, Sorrento, Kingsley, Woodvale,Vines mainly but open to ideas. We are due to fly out 19th April and have a place lined up for two months renting in Kallaroo to keep us going for a little while.

You are right aobut prices though, we went out for our reckie in Nov 2004, and since then prices have rocketed! :scared:

Good luck with everything!

A hairdresser? Will you be my friend?

We are staying in a serviced apartment in Subiaco for the first month and are looking to rent in Sorrento, Duncraig, Padbury, and surrounding areas when our furniture arrives. Hubby's office is on Kings Park Road (West Perth) and he doesn't want to be too far away from there. We're going to spend our 1st 2 weeks in Perth visiting the schools in these areas to try to get a 'feel' for the right one. I'm hoping that the right one for our girls will just leap out at us.

My parents have already booked their flights to come and visit in July (during kids holidays) and at Xmas!

Hi again! So glad you decided on Perth, you made a good choice!! Claire has been asking if we have heard from you, I will let her know you are coming to settle here, she will be thrilled. She has now started her full time posh job so we dont see as much of her as we did. It is very sad when members get work and no longer come to the meetings, they are sadly missed but hey, they still come to the night outs etc! The group has grown so much since we started it, we have upward of 40 members now, not all come to every meeting, but the last meal we had, 37 of them attended and it was a nightmare to organise (thanks to Claire and Sue for that). I am really amazed by the amount of friendly people we have and feel priviliged to have such a great group of people to turn to in order to create some truely memorable social events, I am sure you will both fit in great here, Good Luck!

yeah we think its a good choice too ;O) if you see claire tell her we will be emailing her soon... when time permits! things have gone a bit mad here and we have a million and one things to get done before i go back out!

as i said having the expats group there swung the decision as it does help to get rid of the homesick blues having people we know.. thats if we get them at all! i should imagine the sun gets rid of a few of the blues!

when im back over i will have to see if i can get a thursday off! i'll be buggered if im buying 37 cream cakes tho!!! ;O)

see you soon
