Hi! We are a married couple who moved from England in November 2011 and are currently living in Cambridge, ON. We noticed how lonely it can be starting again in a new country, and after asking around, we realized there are many others that feel the same, We thought it would be a nice idea to have a group for British expats, old or new, or for anyone else that has a connection to Britain and would like to meet new friends. We can meet up for dinners, drinks e.t.c, and have a good old chat about all things British, and our experiences here. The idea is to have a couple of meetups a month, maybe after we get an idea of how many people are interested we will post an event for a pub night. So if your sitting at home, craving that good old British humor and a chinwag, do not hesitate to join us :) There is a $10 per year per member joining fee payable at your first meet. This just helps us to keep the group going (as it does cost to have this site. Any money left over will go towards a pot luck bbq that we hold at ours in the summer.Looking forward to meeting you! Jean and John
