Hi
Would love to come, although not technically a survivor of the earthquake as we haven't arrived yet - we're due to land in Christchurch on September 27th.
But we have had a description of the terror from our friends who live in Oxford - it sounded awful.

I think that's a cracking idea Neil.

I'm not coming obviously, for two reasons;
1 - I'm in Blighty
2 - I didn't survive no earthquake

But it's a nice gesture to all who did, if I had a hat on I'd take it off to you mate, well done!!

What's happening with this meet up? Do you guys have a date? How are you all doing? I hear there are continuous aftershocks still. Are things settling down or are you still living on your nerves?

Update please!!
