What people say

"Nelson Newcomers has exceeded our expectations, it's an excellent initiative. One of the best things to do after moving to another part of the country or to a new country is to join a group like this."
Adrianna

“Everyone is so welcoming and kind to us. We got some advice, found a kindergarten for our boy, it helps me improve my English, it’s so fine!”
Cathy

"It is nice to meet new people and do a bit of socialising instead of job and house hunting. It is a brilliant idea and I am still interested in the activities.”
Jane
