British Family Looking to meet other families

Postby HaydenKSmith » Mon, 11 Jul 2011 8:12 pm

Hi

We are a British Family, new to Singapore (1 month) with 2 children ages 3 and 1. We are looking to meet some new people hopefully with children of their own for days out with the kids.

Happy to meet weekends or wife is available during the weekdays for coffee/lunch.

We can be contacted on

We are also new to Singapore, only been here just over a week. We have two boys 4 years and 18months, would like to meet up with others with similar age kids. I am available during the days for meet ups with the boys.

Let me know

Hi Leigh

Would be great to meet up. We are living in Orchard area so the shopping centres around may be a good place if you are nearby. I know there are a few play areas for the kids which might give the adults a chance to chat :)

If not we can find somewhere convenient where the kids can have a run around.

Where are you staying at the moment?

Hi there,
We are temporarily staying at great world apartments. Only know if the one playground at paragon, are there others? Or else we could go for a walk around Robertson quay. Let me know. Conor the youngest naps around 11am, so either before 11am or after 2pm, whatever works for you.

Regards
Leigh

Katherine is feeling a bit poorly at the moment so we are not sure if we can do this weekend. If were able to it would be at short notice.

Otherwise how would the 23rd suit you. A walk along the river sounds like a good plan and meeting up at Robertson Quay is as good a place as any :)

If you are up for a short notice meet up then I will post here Friday night to let you know if we can make this Saturday. Otherwise feel free to e-mail me on the above address.

It seems a few people on here are close to the River Valley area so that seems the best place to meet up.

Is anyone interested in a meet up this Sunday at Robertson Quay. It's a nice walk and there are plenty of places to eat and drink along the way.

I was thinking of meeting up around 3:00 pm near the coloured bridge.

If we get a single yes then we will be there at 3:00 pm this Sunday :)

Fresh off the Boat and wanting to meet other families

Postby Millroad Cracker » Tue, 09 Aug 2011 11:22 am

Hi,

We are a british family fresh off the boat and would be interested in meeting other families. We have 2 children girl aged 2 (almost 3) and boy aged 6. I'm around during the week but my husband is generally away or alternatively we can all meet during the weekend.

We are currently living in the Orchard road area but will be moving to the Carribean condo in a couple weeks with my eldest starting at Eton House next week
