Just got news from a London bethelite that it was announced on Thursday at London that Chelmsford goes ahead for completion by 2020. No printery!!! (But room for one if they need it - like that is going to happen)According to my source they have 500/550 at moment and numbers accommodated at Chelmsford will be 280
Its all down to the increasing use of digital media. We dont need so much printing as we did before.
The really interesting news is that the large M.A.N press which is worth millions, is being stored underground. Why? I think this has been the plan all along, expecting the UN to ban religion, then digital spiritual food will be harder, we may go back to paper like times gone by when Jehovahs people were under ban. Nothing can ever stop Jehovahs people.
Most of shipping/export departments are moving to Germany. All those brothers and sisters had better start learning German.
Chelmsford can easily house 280 Bethelites, but they now say it will probably be 250 in the Bethel family.
They will each have a lot more room than they do at the moment in Mill Hill. So they could have a larger family if required in the future, they will just have to go back to the amount of space each they have at the moment.
