Talking Hi everyone

Greetings,

I'm Dawn (34), originally from Wales, married to a kiwi who is originally from Masterton, we finished the first part of our immigration process in Feb and are now waiting for 20th July to come so we can start the more exciting part.

We're planning to settle in Levin, both hubby (Chris - 29) and I have jobs in Palmy, I'm in IT, Chris is a pilot (ex-Royal Navy).

We've got 2 boys, Lewis (13) and Sam (12), the boys joined the forum too, lew_uk_kiwi and kiwi_sam, if there are any other children out there going through the same thing, my boys would love to hear from you.

Husband is a bit apprehensive about returning to NZ after 10 years out, he knows things will have changed, but he doesn't know if he'll be able to slot straight back in.

If there's anyone on here with experience of Levin, I'd love to hear more about the town and your opinions on living there, especially the schools and things to do for teenage boys.

Thanks in advance

Dawn

Why on earth would you choose Levin when you both have jobs in Palmie? Seems like a very strange decision, there must be more to it???.

We don't want to live in a "city" and we want to live near the coast, it's only 30-40 minutes to commute, which is less than we both do now. Property is cheaper in Levin too, plus it's near our family, so, not a strange decision at all.
