I am aware that several people here are in the role of trailing spouse, and for new arrivals this can be a daunting experience if it's the first time..
I would suggest that those of you that are interested in meeting others, to discuss practical issues of living here, and occupying your time in either voluntary or paid work.. Arrange to meet during the day, perhaps at one of the many coffee shops ..
I won't be attending myself, but take this opportunity to be the catalyst..
For those interested , use this thread as a contact point.
