Building kingdom halls has died off in UK. No more quick builds in the pipe line. Why?

Most countries won't allow non citizens of thier country to own realestate ie. Mexico, so if there is no money to be made no kingdom hall.

There is virtually no increase in the UK, so there should be no need to build any new Kingdom Halls. (Unless the old ones fall down of course)

The quick-build thang was total hype. They built one in my home town. Foundations, footings, plumbing and electric went in months beforehand. Then about 100 people turned up, erected the prefabricated frame and skimmed parts of the walls with brick facing.

After the published hype, the building suppliers and stockists involved said it was the biggest con that they had ever seen.

Really?

Who said this?

Can this be substantiated?

I would think that the building suppliers would be quite happy to get the buisness.

As far as they would be concerned. KH's should go up every day.

Actually I have seen 3 of them in my life. None of them were pre done, except for the grading and foundation. I think it varies some depending on the circumstanses.

Does a person have to be a witness to see quick builds?

Apparently they have some shield around the perimeter that keeps others from seeing it. I have several family members who are witnesses, one is on their building commitee. I have seen 2 that he worked on and one was caddy corner across the street where we lived once, even the catholics got to watch. ;-)

Also Karen, you may be interested to know that I offered by bring in some lunch for my relative and the workers and was told that only 'approved' associations could participate. I thought that was kind of weird.

LIES!!!

BUSTED and you can't be trustd.

ROFL!

This is clearly misinformation.

Partially true....One cannot participate in "regional" unless they are approved.

They changed that policy a couple of years back due to various reasons...Before anyone could pretty much participate.

However plenty of the friends bring lunch. Even neighbor's who are not witnesses have been known to donate some food item's just because they are curious as to what's going on.

Did she really? So did AHK'S..

It is easy to link all her characters together like that. She still goes along like she hasn't been caught in all her lies, and the rest of them go along with her. They all know they all lie, and they all pretend that they all don't. Sick, sick, sick bunch of people.

I don't understand why they would want to keep it a secret? Who cares? That's weird, but I believe you. It's still pretty cool even if only the outer structure goes up over the weekend.
