Stolen from Wastney Terrace was a very distinctive "Hoodlam/Sea Shepherd" jacket made especially for Sea Shepherd crew members. It is probably the only one on the South Island and also has a sentimental value. I attach the following photos. If seen being worn please contact the Police or if found telephone 5451103. Thanks.

On the 14th November Rosie Barlett, Manager of Parks & Facilities, Nelson City Council wrote the following in response to my queries:

"The Sanctuary has not exercised the right of renewal for the lease where the prefabs sit so this has now expired. Council has given the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary until 31 December 2019 to remove the buildings."



As you can see from the photo I took this morning they are still there! And there is no indication that they are being readied for removal at all! What is going on?

For that amount of money a smaller purpose built facility for the modellers perhaps could be built at Saxtons or where ever and the original pond left as it is.Fill it with carp and other algae and weed eating fish which are allowed in NZ .Could be quite an attraction for taking kids fishing and also another drawcard for Tahuna . Birds and other wildlife would probably access the area once a food source was available.Thinking out loud .. what do think Mr NCC..
