Default Moving from UK to NZ

Hi all,

just wanting some friendly advice as we are thinking about moving from Sheffield, UK to Christchurch NZ. We have two small children (3 yrs and 9 months) and should be able to get jobs within Christchurch Hospital. The major issue I have is my parents, my mum will be devastated when we tell her. Generally though, any help on cost of living, house buying and how to make friends (and influence people) would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.
Merry Christmas to all x

Welcome to the forum Mummy Sian. As the guys above have said, do check out the NZ forum. There's loads of info and many folks to help you out.

Hope your Mum takes the news OK. I see you have very young family, so I imagine your Mum is not into senior years just yet. Maybe she would relish a holiday out in NZ once you get settled out there?

All the best with your plans
