  1. It looks so welcoming and inviting doesn't it? As if!

  2. Do they have two sets of gates, with a trap zone in between?

    1. It would appear so. I have seen the same layout at other recently constructed halls, like Perth, Scotland. Why is there a keypad system to get out though? That seems a bit sinister to me.

  3. You got it all wrong. This is a joint enterprise with the Salvation Army providing accommodation for the homeless.

  4. But there is an innovative method of screening the clients: keep the place locked so they cannot get in

  5. There are actually three sets and usually all 3 are shut.

    1. Are these to keep Oliver M Woodcock in or out?

    2. You mean the Oliver Woodcock who knew Anna Napthene?

    3. Knew Anna Napthene before and after she died.

  8. spot the security people - including a women in trousers. Why does a church need security?

  9. A woman in trousers!? I thought the security was "in house", but this must prove me wrong in that regard. It really is quite bizarre; it reminds me of the film "The Godfather" and his daughter's wedding, with all the heavies hanging around the gates ready to rough up any unwelcome visitors. My tax for this? No thanks!

  10. Picture number 3 shows a guard/sniffer dog at the right hand gate. Obviously not an EB pet, but part of the hired security system.

    They have never yet explained what they are afraid of. Sooo welcoming!

    1. I think the dog is that of a passing pedestrian, not part of security.

      However, I can recall that we had security with Alsation dogs to protect us when JHS was in town.

  11. Wow - the devil must have gotten in - having the women security guard show up wearing pants. Did they forget to tell her that pants are men's clothing? Somebody slipped up somewhere - and to quote the Queen of Hearts - "off with their head"
