Default Tauranga or Papamoa Meet up

Hi,

My husband & I moved here about a year ago and looking to increase our circle of friends. My husband runs a business from home & I am a housewife (trying to get into screenplay writing)...

We LOVE Papamoa but finding it a little too quiet

We are in our early thirties and would love to meet up with any expats in the area

I am originally from NZ but spent the last 10yrs in the UK however my husband is English (Bristol boy)!

Drop me a PM if anyone is interested in having a drink with us!

Cheers, Lou

I have sent you a private message. You will love Papamoa once you get used to it. We left there last Sunday having spent six weeks with our family.

We probably are overdue a BE meet up, it's just sometimes a bit hard to organise to fit in around everyone and all their different commitments. Everyone seems so busy!

We used to try and arrange them for evening drinks at Rain, how are you newbies fixed for babysitters?

Alternatively BBQ's and picnics are an alternative? I don't mind putting the word out if you lot decide what you want to do and then some of us oldies can come along!

I'll be your friend

We are a couple in our early 30s, we have EXACTLY the same problem, we moved to Papamoa about a year ago, bought a house, etc, but haven't made too many friends (How many is too many? ).

I think it's hard when your not part of a community like a church and even in some social clubs (sports clubs, etc) it's hard making friends that you'd do anything other than play sports with.

Plus it would be cool to have some English friends here

Hi AM Loolah

That would be great to have drinks or BBQ's... picnics - sounds like a fun plan!! We're really easy and 'children' free so whatever works best for the others - just count us in!!
