has a range of information available covering many subjects.
If you wish to copy/paste links or files, then please do so, you don't have

Links were not visible before, due to incorrect settings. This has now been
fixed, my thanks to Paul Petrea of LivinginCebu and others for their help,
assistance and support.
This group was renamed on Sunday 19th June, fathers day, also the birthday

" There are no negative aspects to living in the Philippines - just
differences for us to adjust to."
This is a Group for persons British, and their spouses; either Living in the
Philippines, particularly Cebu, or considering doing so.
Unlike other Yahoo Groups dedicated to the Philippines, its people,
cultures, and more specifically Cebu, this Yahoo Group - 'Philippines
BritClub', is only open to members with a British Passport!
The only purpose behind this stipulation, is to keep the message postings
focused on those topics of interest to Brits.
Be it a topic on NI Contributions Pension entitlements, or less serious like
moaning about the lack of 'Real Ale'. You may be seeking someone to bring
out a jar of 'Branston Pickle'. You could be thinking "Is there any decent,
proper 'British Banger' sausages?". Where can one buy some 'Coleman's
Mustard', and other things like proper 'Malt vinegar'?. "Are there any
restaurants offering a decent curry in Cebu" etc.!
Hopefully this is where to ask such questions, and find out the answers.
>From those Brits who understand, who care, and will try and find out - even
if they don't know; anything for a fellow Brit - no?
This is also to be a forum for posting details of Social events for Cebu
BritClub members - having a 'Get Together' at different restaurants. The odd
game of 'Darts' now and again - we might invite the odd non-Brit to join in
" Friends are the family, we choose for ourselves "
