Talking Hello I am new to this site!

Our name is Alan, Lisa and we have a daughter who is 7 1/2 years old. We are in our late 30's and have been living in Johnsonville, Wellington for 5 years.

I was born in Staffordshire and I am a keen fishing Kayaker, my wife is a kiwi & our daughter is Welsh.

Before coming to New Zealand we lived for 10 years in Cardiff South Wales.

We would love to hear from you.

Hello folks, welcome the forum. I’m pretty sure we have some expatriates down you way amongst us.

Shwmae, Alan & family.

My family and I moved to New Zealand 9 months ago (currently living in Waitakere - West Auckland) from Swansea. Saw your post and thought I would pop by and say hello

Hi Mick & Caroline. We made a very similar move to you ....... except that we came from Dartford. The Rotorua quiz nights are still happening on a regular basis, officially the 1st Sunday of the month, although it's got a bit flexible recently depending on when people are free. Just back from this months effort but we didn't exactly do well this evening I'm afraid. Good company though & plenty of chat so a fun evening. Good luck with your plans to move to Rotorua, do shout if you need any help or info.

Bugger, I keep missing this and actually thought it was the last Sunday of the month and have been working the last few of those. Could have made it tonight as well..will need to be more organised next time (or someone has to text me and remind me!)

Sorry for hijacking the thread...oops
