My children attended Lacon Childe school in the neighboring village of Cleobury Mortimer. It's a fantastic school. You can view it on the internet.

I can't wait to get back it's a beautiful area. One i didn't appreciate enough.

There are many great places in Shropshire. Telford is ok. However you could live in one of it's neighboring villages. Get up a google map of shropshire and then investigate the areas.

To me, there is no where better than the good old Clee Hills.



oh couldnt agree more, we lived a few years back in far forest, our eldest went to the far forest primary - just a lovely english village school!
cant wait to get back there, 6 and a bit weeks!!!

hi mantooz.

How great! I went to Far Forest school. As a girl i grew up in Far Forest. My family still live there and i will be going to stay with them when we get back.

It's so uplifting to talk about something that makes me happy. I have been so very unhappy for the last seven months. I am just waiting for our new baby boy to receive his NZ and UK passport, then were off.

Maybe we could go the the Plough pub when we are both back. Just imagine a great pint!!!!!

Yes the plough does do nice food. My sister works there. She is always letting me know how nice the sausages are, she knows how much i miss them. Another coincidence we have is Worcester hospital. My auntie has worked there too. Are you a nurse? She now works at Kidderminster. Kidderminster now has a great shopping centre, have a look when you get back. Sorry to be nosey but why are you going home? Also, maybe we know each other. My first name is Gail. I used to live down New Road in Far Forest.

Yes you remember correctly. Did you live in one of the newly built houses in Forest Close? I'm returning for the exact same reasons. I'm very disappointed that it hasn't worked in NZ but you never now if it will until you do it. My eldest son is staying in NZ. It's a very difficult time for me, but it's what he wants to do and he is 18 in October, old enough to make his own decisions. My twelve year old is eager to go home. My OH isn't. However, he will return for my sanity. How long have you been in OZ? Are you a midwife there?

No i lived in the houses overlooking the field, after we chopped the hedge down, lol, i had two children then, one in far forest and one baby (have three now), was friends with debbie on your road? she had one boy at the time, but has had a girl since then.....

yes midwife here but only very very casual, actually hardly ever since we made decision to come back, why learn their ways? !!

Default Re: Shropshire

I think that you may have been there after i had moved to Clee Hill. My auntie lived on the corner. Her name is Jackie. You may remember her. I hope to be back in Shropshire asap. We've only been in NZ for seven months. They have been the most unhappy months of my life. have you been in OZ very long? i ask because i've had so many people tell me that i should stick it out for longer!!!!!!!!!!!! However, i am just so unhappy that the thought of staying any longer than the end of this year, makes me want to pull the quilt over my head and never come out. If you have been there longer did you always want to go home? did your homesickness get worse over time? I'm just so confused over this whole experience..............On a lighter note............do you miss grey skys and snow? I do!!!!!......I never thought i would.

hello, we have been here just over a yr, we knew from the early days that oz for life wasnt for us! and this has stayed the same, we dont hate oz, but we dont love it enough to stay! if that makes sense.

I think all those that say you need to stay for two yrs are talkin rubbish!
, follow your heart..........you have one life and thats it, so do what you want and dont listen to those that tell you otherwise.

Yes i miss the grey skys ans snow!! lol but im not sure its those specific things i miss or just miss home! i personally think all those that list what they miss, and im included in that! are unhappy where they are and try and find reasons to satisfy other people when really they just want to go home and thats it! lol

when you planning on making the leap?

Default Re: Shropshire

You have made me feel better. Thank you.

I have been worrying over what i will say to people about why it hasn't worked. I have already found that those who haven't done it have so much to say! Often, criticizing and usually full of the same lines of advice. (well, didn't you consider that before you left) a very popular line!!!!!!!!!!!

You are right that people in our situation do keep thinking and trying to justify why they want to come home.

Glad you agree about the two year stay. It's like some magic marker.....You can leave freely as long as you reach it....b.....ks....

I have got my baby boys NZ passport yhis morningFantastic. Once i have his UK one, i will be free to plan our return.
I will definatly be gone by the end of November, this year. We will have been here a year by then. I would like to think i could make it until then, for tax reasons and for my OH to have seen all he wants to see of NZ. But i'm not sure if i will.

Glad to hear that you don't hate OZ. I wish that i didn't feel that i hate NZ. At this moment i do........I hope that once the bad taste of the experience has gone, i will return (for a holiday) to appreciate NZ.

This experience has taught me to never say never! On leaving the UK i said that i would never go back..............that'll teach me...........maybe i will return to NZ...............i hope i don't fall into the ping pong, pom trap

Anyway good look on your return I hope it all goes well. Any time you want to talk Shropshire, i'll be only to happy to join in.

Hi Kath and Graham.

I know the Mid to South Shropshire area very well. Also Worcester City is just out of Shropshire but in very similar countryside. It has everything you could ask for; shops, schools, cinema, restaurants, bars nightclubs, colleges etc the M5 runs down the west side. It may be just what you are looking for.

If it's too big. There are many small villages within your 30 min travelling range. To look it up just put Worcester City in a google search. Also, look at www.maps.google.co.uk put in worcester and select satellite view. This will show you the lay out. Like an aerial photo. You should be able to see all the neighbouring villages.

Both my partner and I have worked in that area. Villages such as; Suckley, Alfrick, Lusley. Somewhere a little bigger is Bromyard. This is Shropshire way has cheaper house prices and is within your 30 min of motorway access. Also try; Martley, Heightington, Stourport-on-severn, Far Forest, Ombersley (bit pricey!) there are a wealth of beautiful places out that way.

If you want to know about any areas you may find on the map, give me a shout i will help if i can.

If we do all end up back in the same area we will have to meet up.

Hiya!! thanks for that info, Graham is an electrical Project Manager nd at present is building sub stations here in WA but wants to stay as Project Manager back in UK. He has been approached by quite a few agencies but until we can give them dates we get back we cant do anything I wouldnt mind getting back into office work or shop work (which i did while kids little), anything really. He doesnt really wanna have to start right at the bottom again and I know Birmingham and Manchester etc are close field so Im hoping something will come up...

Yeh we will keep in touch I must say that area is really appealing to me and especially as Wales is not too far away, as we like holidaying there and my friends will be able to visit regularly, fingers crossed something turns up and we sell this blimmin house
