Tekels Park to be Sold to a Developer
Tekels Park is a 50 acre woodland estate near

News of the sale, and that it is to a developer, is now leaking out through independent websites, blogs and email between members. Anybody dealing with the sale proves extremely hard to find and the matter is clearly not up for discussion.

You would need to have had your head in block of
cement for the past 3 years not to know that this
is a bad time to sell.
Many are unhappy that this is certainly not a good time to get a good price for the Tekels Park Estate and that professional advice in 2009, not to sell the Park, has been ignored.
There is a rush to sell Tekels Park
Tekels Park is being sold quickly and quietly, hopefully before the decision can be questioned and alternatives proposed. The need to sell is based on financial information which has not been presented to the general membership and which hardly anyone appears to have seen.
The secrecy surrounding such a momentous
decision is incredible. You wonít find anything
about the sale on the
website. Itís as if it just isnít happening.
The decision to sell
to be based on dire figures.
It is impossible to find anyone who can even report having seen or is
able to comment on the figures on which the decision to sell

Many Theosophists have urged the leadership to

Theosophical Society at not being
consulted about the sale or even told

Donít Tell anybody but
A sanctuary for wildlife for decades
It is hard to see how the future of the Tekels Park wildlife is compatible with development. The animals, which include deer and badgers, cannot survive if their foraging area is destroyed. This is a subject definitely not for discussion by the Theosophical Society in Englandís leadership.

In May 2013, a family of four who had been resident on the Tekels Park Estate for many years were evicted from their home because a Tekels Park Estate director decided that he wanted to live in their house. It is not known if future evictions are planned.

From the Website Owner:- Dave Marsland
I am dedicated to the future of the Tekels Park animals and have created this website in support of saving them.
My main concern in posting information on this, and related websites, is to draw attention to the sale of the 50 acre sanctuary for wildlife to a property developer and the inevitable deaths of the animals by slaughter or habitat destruction.
The killing of the Tekels Park animals would be an obscenity and as a long standing student of Theosophy, I cannot turn a blind eye.
I maintain that the Tekels Park management and the Theosophical Society in England leadership have attempted to keep the fate of the Park and its wildlife from public attention and the attention of the Theosophical Society in England members.
