Hi I'm Elaine Kirk. My mum, dad and sister Jacqui moved from Nottinghamshire England to Wollongong in August 1969. Dad had a job to come to at the Port Kembla Steelworks and we lived on Fairy Meadow hostel til September 1970. Mum worked in the kitchen on the hostel. I was 10 and I went to Towradgi Public School. We moved to Dapto after the hostel. I can't believe 2019 will be our 50th anniversary. We're planning a family trip to Fairy Meadow with our extended family to celebrate. Dad always says the only regret he has about coming to Australia was he and mum didn't think of doing it earlier Surprised
