Hi Eleanor,

We have been in NZ for just over 4 weeks now, living in Ngaio. If you would like to meet up, we would be happy to arrange a convenient time over the weekend. Let us know if you are familiar with our area, or would you prefer the City? We spent our first 2 weeks living in Cuba Street and can recommend either Murphy's Irish Bar or the Bristol Hotel for a drink and/or food. There is a Monteiths's bar in Khandallah which also has good food and the drink is slightly cheaper than in town. Let us know if you are interested. George & Angela Fisher.

Sorry I didn't reply in time for this weekend...hope you enjoed the nicer weather :0)

Was wondering if you fancied meeting next Sunday (8th) about 2pm. We're off to see the phoenix at 5, but wondered if you wanted to meet in town for an afternoon drink/coffee. There's a couple of places, The Craftsman on Courntney Place is a bit cheaper than the other central bars, or perhaps one of the coffee shops....Esquires on Featherston, or the Simply Paris coffee shop at the top of cuba?

Hi Ellie,

The Craftsman at 2pm for a drink sounds good to us. We also have tickets for the Phoenix on Sunday. Just as a matter of interest, what is your home team? We are Sunderland supporters (for our sins!). How will we recognise each other?

Oooo bugger we're Spurs....erm do you want to wait and see the result before we agree to spending time together?

We'll see you just outside the door at 2pm...that way if you see two people looking for two others we should hopefully spot each other :0) Other than that erm....I'm likely to be wearing black fleece top, have short brown/blonde hair, about 5foot4....unless you want to go for the rose in lapel!

I'm sure we can be civil, whatever the score!! I think we're a bit past football hooliganism. Might have been different if you were from Newcastle mind!!! I'm sure we'll find each other - look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

George & Angela

Had a good ol' natter sunday and looking for to this saturday too :0)

Was wondering if we could move it to 5pm. Half hour earlier in order to grab food and get to the stadium in plenty of time. Might take a little longer to get through the gate with 5 times as many people!

Hi Boopy, George is on call this weekend, but we'll see what time he gets finished and will try and get down to meet you. You do realise the Welsh Dragon used to be the public toilets, don't you? How will we know you?

Hi Del,

Welsh Dragon is always our first port of call on a night out in town. Mike the owner is a great laugh, yeah I know it was the victorian loo block. Have you seen the old plans, they have them on the wall. Saturday night started off as a girlie night out, but anyone is welcome. So why don't you come along then meet the hubby later. We have such fun in town, as I said I'm from S'land & wait for it!!! My best mate here is from the toon.... just as well she's not into footie.
