We'll keep a watch out and see you in August then. Bring thermals for the evenings and frosty early mornings. Rainbow skifield will be open. Not sure if Hamish Heron will be back in the village or not.

Re: Yippeee we've got it
Fab news!

We haven't even submitted our EOI yet but are hoping to move in early 2009 - better get a move on!!
Which agent did you use? Were they any good? How much did it cost?

Why did you choose Nelson? That is also our first choice but I am concerned about our ability to find jobs there? Are you going with jobs already sorted? If so, how have you managed to look for jobs in the area - any tips?

Questions questions......

We looked at different areas,but always came back to looking at the Nelson
area,it just ticked all the boxes for us.
We don't have job offers,when I visited last year there was lots of work(carpenter joiner).
We used the Emigration Group I think the price varies on your circumstances,its not cheap but we found them very good.
