Slow month no word on the future of the Admin block which is meant to be sold and turned into a Backpackers, It is still listed on the Property brokers website still, so I can only assume perhaps the sale fell through?
The UN report (which is what all the recent news articles were about) does not have to be in until the end of May so I will follow that up in next months blog, this is a massive ordeal submitting a complaint rather costly & lengthy process, the public's support is much appreciated in this time. On that note I am very sad to say that one of the main Lake Alice activist's and survivor Kevin Banks is returning to live in Australia after being back in NZ since mid 2000's. Thank you to Kevin for his contribution to the website over the last year and a half. Best of luck in Aust!
Old McDonald has been very busy man on his farm, stripping back the Hall, removing the gib boards and floor boards (which are in pretty good condition) so he is obliviously trying to selvage what he can, at the same time he is also building himself a little retreat behind the Workshops for duck hunting season, home away from home. The word is that he is getting in demolition people in the next few months to come, believe it when I see it. I really don't think he will knock those resident Villas down as many of them are in good condition and he has asked around about getting developers in to look at doing them up.
Be weary of Old McDonald he doesn't want his precious floor boards stolen so is driving past the hospital each night. I swear he's a ex patient ;)
Thanks for reading,
