Agreed - we've been waiting for this thread too!

Starship is right next to my new workplace at City Hospital!

Should also mention my wife and 5yr old daughter are also making the move, and we're on residence visas.

My wife Clare and two daughters (Lily 5 and Jasmine 2) leave the UK from Heathrow on the 16th and arrive in Auckland on the 26th after a week in LA.
Can't believe we are at the point where we can add our names to the roll call, we've been watching these threads come and go for months now and our departure date always seemed so far away........NOT NOW!!!

It seems I have neglected to include myself in the family migration.....
It should obviously read My wife Clare "and I" and our two daughters (Lily 5 and Jasmine 2) leave...........

I wonder how much of an impact the EQ is ChCh have had on a) the number of people choosing NZ as a possible destination and b) where they live in NZ?

We were initially moving to ChCh before the EQ!

That's an interesting one. I think more people would be thinking twice about ChCh presently.

Can't believe I am actually adding to this thread - it's been a long time coming and I really thought I'd never get to do this . . . . . . . but anyway, I am and we're flying with Singapore Airlines from Manchester on July 19th arriving July 20th . . . . . . OMG!!! Would you please add me to the list?
