After some discussion over tea and biscuits, we've decided to change the name of our group from Strange Occurrences - Paranormal Investigators to New Zealand Strange Occurrences Society. This is because we've been 10 years as 'Strange Occurrences - Paranormal Investigators' and it is time for a change to reflect a wider scope of activity than just paranormal investigation.
Things have shifted, the scene in NZ has changed, and we've all got older. And although we'll still grab the next opportunity to explore an abandoned hospital into the small hours, the name change reflects that we're doing other kinds of things as well. Increasingly, it's about communication. And we still like getting involved in people's various creative projects.
As a team, we look forward to the next 10 years of involvement and exploration in the field of the paranormal in New Zealand.
