The Civic turned up only an ambiguous audio recording. The most haunted places are average hou- ses, Mr Wallbank says. It takes a lot for us to say a place is haunted, we've got to have a lot of proof first. It's not very often we do come out and say this place is haun- ted','' he says. One theory is that ghosts, whatever they are, are made up of energy. This could could be heat, light or electricity. For this reason the team uses a range of gadgets including ther- mometers and electro- magnetic field monitors to detect changes in the environment. Many investigations reveal nothing and Mr Wallbank admits the group spends a good por- tion of its time sitting in the dark just waiting. On the flip side there are the cases that leave members in awe. One of the most fasci- nating investigations Mr Wallbank has been a part of was at a family home in New Lynn. The building had a chequered history and was previously a gang headquarters, brothel and drug house. There had been quite a lot of activity in the house from apparitions appearing in doorways to people being touched and hearing voices,'' he says. The team spent all night in the house and at 3am it started to get res- ponses to its questions in the form of tapping. They say the presence was apparently Jonathan Lockley, a boy who died of illness in the house during the 1960s. We talked to him for about an hour and managed to get answers to most of what we asked,'' Mr Wallbank says. I'm quite a skeptic myself and I was blown away by the whole thing.'' Members are still try- ing to confirm if the story adds up, but they are hopeful. Mr Wallbank has been interested in the paran- ormal since childhood. I just got bored with normal life and was look- ing at everything that was unusual. I was really fascinated by old buildings and history and as I got older I went with it.''

Photo: JESS ETHERIDGE Park plan advances By JESS ETHERIDGE Korean immigrants wanting to give back to the North Shore com- munity hope to begin work on a traditional garden in Takapuna in a few months. Korean Garden Trust executive director Ben Lee says the group has submitted a second pro- posal to Auckland Coun- cil after it was asked for more information. From there, it will apply for a licence to occupy the 1.5 hectare Barrys Point Reserve land, Mr Lee says. The garden at Barrys Pt Reserve was approved by the former North Shore City Council. Mr Lee, who moved to New Zealand from Seoul, South Korea in 1994, began a volunteer group which tended to weeds and cleaned the reserve. Over that time I feel we have had many bene- fits and favours from this community so I decided to return something back to this local community.'' The garden, which will represent Korean culture and history, will be div- ided into three phases of construction, Mr Lee says. The road entry and New Zealand Korean Veterans Association park will be completed in the first phase. If the licence to occupy is granted this year con- struction on the mem- orial will begin as soon as possible, he says. Stage two would begin in three years and the garden would be com- pleted by 2019. It will be an intercul- tural co-operation between New Zealand local community and the Korean community.'' Plans to ship a rock from South Korea for the veterans section cost too much, Mr Lee says. But a large rock from Great Barrier Island has been donated by a war veteran. They sacrificed their youth and life for Korea 60 years ago, so we will construct that garden,'' he says. Two pavillions, a pond, bridge, sculpture park and an open-air theatre for 700 people will be built.
