Congratulations :) It will move along so quickly now you will hardly be able to catch your breath! :)
Whereabouts in Shropshire are you? We lived in Shawbury for a while, I worked in community care at the time, knew Shrewsbury vaguely.

We live in Tauranga and have some friends visiting us from the UK they have fallen in love with the area just like we did when we arrived here 3 years ago.The Bay of Plenty is a beautiful place you have made a good choice.
Good Luck with the move :)

We are also looking at the Bay of Plenty and possibly Tauranga as a new home. But we have some concerns over house prices we have read recently that the average price is $650,000 is this true! Or have we been reading the wrong books :)

Well done guys thats excellent news. I hope the rest of the adventure goes smoothly. So Shropshire loses another of its residents!!

We should be following early next year. We went to the NZ expo in London yesterday and Immigration said you are young (26 & 27), get your asses over on a Working Holiday Visa for two years and secure emploment!! Its gonna cost £45 each for the visa so great news for us, it will give us a more realistic path towards PR. I guess we'll be the last ones out so we'll check the lights and lock the doors! :)

Dont know what books you been reading you can pick up a decent house for around $400 and even less depending on area etc
