English woman from Leeds UK to Basel. FRIENDS WANTED!

Hi!

Im 29 years old and moving to Basel on at the end of March 2012! Im from Leeds in the UK and my husband has got a fab new job in Basel for the next three years, so we are moving!

We have a little girl who is 8 months old, so i am now a full time mum

Before i had our little girl, i was a team leader of an administration team for a recuritment company and i was due to go back to work as a PA to the MD, but all that has changed in the last three weeks!

I'd love to meet up and make friends with another woman who might be a mum, or speaks English.

If anyone has any info on other websites which are good for making friends, please let me know!

Looking forward to making new friends in Basel and starting our new adventure!

Lisa and Baby Phoebe X

Greetings Lisa, hubby and babie Phoebe (bless)

Welcome to the forum and soon to Switzerland.

There are quite a few very active EFers based in Basel, some of whom are also parents with young children, and hopefully some of them will be along to say hello to you soon.

There are lots of English speakers around, from all parts of the world, so you don't have to worry about that at all. I'm sure you'll start making new friends quickly.

Wishing you all the very best as you embark on this BIG adventure together.

Cheers.

Dear Lisa

Welcome to the Forum and welcome to Basel.

There are lots of Basel mums on the forum, and we are all also members of this excellent group .. www.baselchildrenstrust.ch which, if you are familiar with the NCT in the UK, runs on similar lines (although a much wider mix of people than the NCT group I was a member of in the UK attracted ). They have weekly meet ups for mums and children of all ages.

I would love to meet up for a quick coffee to say hello when you get here. PM me when you arrive.

Regards E.

Hi Lisa,

warm welcome to Switzerland

I have found one of the easiest ways to make contacts and friends when you have a child is through childrens playgroups. The church I go to, Crossroads International have a coffee with kids group which meets every Tuesday from 9-11am. it's a really friendly group with moms from all over the world who have come to live in Basel. You would be very welcome and I'm sure feel at home

the address is:
Reinacherstrasse 129
4053 Basel

Samantha
