Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't see much of an effort from new members who have joined here in the last 6 months,especially around my area,finding new stuff, even if it's Just grade 3 derps such as this. Instead opting for the obvious 'tourist trails'. Come on brothers and sisters, shake a leg and stay off that f@cking facebook.

Kuehne and Nagel (KN) (pronounced "KOO-nuh and NAH-gel")are the world’s second largest logistics company, the number one global seafreight forwarder, top three global air cargo forwarder, and top three contract logistics provider. The company was founded in 1890 in Bremen, Germany, by August Kuehne and Friedrich Nagel. Currently the company has more than 1000 offices in over 100 countries, with in excess of 63,000 employees. The company is now headquartered in Schindellegi in the canton of Schwyz in Switzerland.

The existing storage and distribution units will be razed to make way for a majority of one, two and three bedroom houses, with a limited number of four and five bedroom homes.
Councillor Colin Wilson, said: “Sadly our industrial life in the area is going. A good alternative for this site is housing and I support that.â€However members did criticise the amount of affordable housing being offered by developers, with just 10 per cent of the site set to be earmarked. Members agreed the application with the condition a bat survey be carried out before demolition takes place due to the close proximity of the site to Saltwells Nature Reserve, where bat activity is prominent.
