to change to Audrey’s International Club Christchurch instead so I did. Now, it’s called Audrey’s
International Club Christchurch!
It’s a Free to join no membership fees Interesting Fun Social Club.

Audrey's International Club was created on 27th September 2011 by Audrey. This Club is for people
from anywhere in the world to meet new people and mingle which some new migrants to New
Zealand have found to be a good place to ask questions etc..
This Club fosters friendship and helps with people that custom to New Zealand. We also share
our cultures, customs, and countries of origin to each other. We meet over a pot luck type of
arrangement where people bring ethnic foods with their ethnic costumes from their countries of
origin to share with others. It’s also for people to meet new friends, enhance relationships or just to
mingle. Sometimes I organise lunch and dinner at different restaurants and the members find it an

The Club has 241 members (189 on FB and 52 + not on FB) since 29th September 2011. Twenty- nine
different countries from around the globe. That is AMAZING!

I communicate to the members via Facebook and email members that aren’t on Facebook of any
information about events coming up and share the events photos on the Club’s FB page.
People from overseas have found it a way to get familiar with their new country by mixing with
people who are in a similar situation to them.
We're fun people and interesting group of people. We Are All In One!
