I've been meaning to write a new blog but with the year drawing to a end other things to be done. I was interviewed last week by students from a University in Wellington who where doing a film project and chose to do a doco on Lake Alice (plenty to be told there). So good luck to them!
I have driven past the hospital recently and saw the army are still utilizing the property
I heard through the grapevine that the owners are considering doing a few of the Villas up and renting them out, this is a very ambitious plan, not sure if I would want to live at a old mental hospital. Either way time will tell...
While I'm at it I should mention I was also told that the police do night time drive by's past Lake Alice, checking the back gate for people etc there has also been a few incidents where people have came back to there cars & police were waiting for them (always used to dread that, lucky it never happend to me) and that the owners or should I say there Nazi security have taken the law into there own hands when it comes to dealing with people on there property, saying they will shoot and vandalize peoples cars which they find out by the gates so if you do not want your vehicle damaged I suggest leaving someone in the car or not going near the property (had to say something responsible) On that note you should be aware that willful damage is far worse then trespassing I would lay a complaint with the police should something happen to you, I would like to highlight to people that the definition of trespassing is when you are on somebody else's property and they ask you to leave to which you fail then you are breaking the law. Signs can be classed as a warning so be careful as these could be used against you if you where to be caught 'trespassing'.
All for now, Nathan...
