Three requests

I ask that when you visit The Sanctuary you respect your fellow traveller.
The Sanctuary needs honest people and goodwill or systems do not work.

I ask that unless you have paid for a bed in The Sanctuary and are a guest, that you do not push inside and use their kitchen and their facilities.

These guests have paid for these facilities and it is not fair to them.

Socialise in the café’s or bars, or at the DoC Day Room.

I ask the TA community to support this Bounce Box facility.

It is my intention to build a hut dedicated to TA walkers, and this hut will be open and free to the TA community.

Should I get your support then I will have the confidence to build, and so be better able to service those that follow in your footsteps.
