Justice not Crisis

I've just visited a newly squatted hotel on the Bristol Road. It has been reopened by the group who had / still have squatted four houses owned by the Warwickshire County Cricket Club nearby.

The hotel has 22 rooms a couple of large dining rooms a bar etc but most impressively beautiful trees, a stocked fishing lake, and a couple of (vicious) geese and ducks.

The new occupants were previously homeless and some of recently in the vulnerable position of sleeping rough. Their intention is to clean up the hotel, start paying the bills, and open it up to guests.
