Mary, I know you've been desperate to go for some time, but we'll miss you here. You'll do OK among the Scottish community out there, with the old Stomach Steinway.
Good luck, and I wish you a swift sale.

A end of an era - thank you for all your support over these many years.
Thrilled to hear that you have both finally made it.
Of course if the lottery ever comes up, unfortunately NZ is top of the list - my friends of over 40 years are there - so watch your backs.
Huge hugs and love
Pearl & Tony xx

Good on yer, Mate!

Bay of Plenty's a nice area. If you ever come down Wellington way, PM and look me up. I'm in Paekakariki.

The folk scene is alive and well and thriving here, so you should have a good time. Welcome! (when you finally get here)...

Hopefully you'll be settled by the end of next January and we'll see you at the Auckland Folk Festival then.

I would like to see you there at the Auckland F.F., the biggest in NZ. Still small enough to meet the folkies from everywhere, though.
I moved here in 1974. The culture-shock is quite minor, really.

Good luck with your move, Mary, I had hoped I would have been able to come down to see you again, but I guess it wasn't to be.

Are you still playing your Martin Backpacker ?

Vectis is the Latin name for The Isle of Wight. I can foresee some engineer and logistical problems in moving a fairly large island from the Solent to the archipeligo that borders the Pacific Ocean.... and when they get it there where are they going to locate it?

... or perhaps this just refers to Mary Barr. Good luck, Mary!

Thank you all for your help and information and the heap of PMs with info and invites.

I don't know if I will make this Auckland festival but hope so, it would be great to meet Gurney and Little Robyn after all these years.

I have only been to Wellington in January when the clubs are all shut for summer so maybe I will get down there once I have settled in.

I will have the kettle on waiting for you Splotty, Dame and Brian. Will you be at Katikati? That looks like it will be my local club.

Sandra - I may well hop the ditch one day and visit Oz.

House on market and starting to pack...

Hi "Vectis" I wish the Isle of Wight would move to New Zealand .. it would save me a fortune in air fares when I go there from Oz(every 2-3 years) to visit my family. Hope you settle in well ... good to see another Caulkhead moving down under!!

Are you leaving the zobstick under a glass dome to be displayed at Seaford on club nights?

If I ever get over to see my cousin and her family in NZ, I'll come and haunt you!

nager & Helen - what's this about you popping down to Sydney and never visiting my club?

or telling us so we can arrange a singing sessions as we do when local & overseas friends pop into Sydney!

Eek! I thought for a moment you meant the Isle of Wight bus service (Southern Vectis) was moving to NZ! It would be some time before anybody noticed ...

Good luck to you, and a safe journey.
