Default brits at the jersey shore, new jersey?

Hi
Are there any brits in monmouth county area? I am from the uk, living at the jersey shore, looking to meet fellow brits who live nearby.
All the groups I have seen have been in NYC but I was looking a little closer to home.

Hi Gayle, I am a brit living near the Jersey shore. Have been here 4 years now and also looking to meet fellow brits living nearby. I agree that most meet up groups seem to be in or around NY.

Living in Verona NJ (Essex County)? Would love to hear of meet-ups. Been here just under a year and already incredibly homesick!

Just a random curious question for Brits in NJ. I'm sure some of you have encountered Guido/etts. How do they respond to such a alien accent? lol Don't mind my curiosity

My in laws are at Waretown - exit 69.
We are in Wanaque, near Ringwood/Oakland. Used to live in Upper Montclair. BTW there is an english shop in Montclair on Watchung Ave.
Let me know if you ever fancy a get together down the shore or up in Northern Jersey -----Joisey ( the guido/ette) lifestyle and speech is just ridiculous imho.

I am in Summit in NJ (Union County), kinda north central. Always up for a meeting if one happens.

London Food Company in Montclair is great, I was delighted when I found them when I lived here the first time.

Hope to see some or all of you soon

Have you tried Gary's Winestore in Madison sells British goodies?...as does the Irish Shop in Bridgewater Mall. King's and Super Stop n Shop also sell a few bits and pieces.

I remember Gary's in Madison from when I first moved here in 2001 it was an absolute life saver. The Super Stop and Shop is that also in Madison??

My father-in-law to be tells me that the A&P in New Providence (off springfield ave) has a good chocolate section (including mint aero, yorkie and from what he gave me yesterday penguins).

Are you close to Madison yourself?

Yes it's in the adjoining car park...you can't miss it.

I'm in Morris County...the nearest Gary's to me is Bernardsville. I sometimes pop into the Madison shop...especially if I'm in the Mall at SH.

I thought that might be the one.

I used to work at what was the Verizon building on Park Ave when I was here the first time.

I did notice that the Wine store on Springfield Ave, here in Summit no longer sells UK sweets which was a shame.

We also live in Summit and would love to meet up. All the ones I have seen lately have been the NYC ones and since we have kids, not sure that would work

I am not working at the moment so I can tell you all the places I have found that stock English stuff. More than happy to meet up if you want. Would be nice to have some English friends close by.
