Achievement Unlocked – Loading Hackspace 2.0

 

This afternoon I had a meeting with the folks at Bizspace and an agreement was made that means we will be moving into Roden House at the end of April.

Our new address is:

Nottingham Hackspace, Unit F6 BizSpace, Roden House Business Centre, Nottingham, NG3 1JH

(we’re exactly below the Rollo Accademy of Performing Art)

We have been delighted, encouraged and sometimes humbled by the donations we received. Particularly poignant were the donations from Hackers in Japan which we found extremely thought provoking.

We’d particularly like to thank BoingBoing.net, London Hackspace and NYC Resistor for their help. So many of you donated to the PayPal and bank account that it will take us a couple of days to list and note everyone and ensure we’ve spotted the new membership payments too.

We currently worked out that we received £780 in PayPal donations and about £1ooo in bank donations from both members, friends and well wishers. We’ve managed to top up the rest we required for the deposit with membership fees and workshop admission charges that we’d bank over the last few months!

Our very last Open Hack Night at the Old Police Station on Station Street Nottingham will be on Wednesday 27th April (tomorrow). We will be moving the Hackspace “stuff” to the new space on Sunday 1st May (all day long).

We are going to have a massive Open Day Event & Party on Sunday the 29th May 2011 when we hope to entertain a large number of makers and exhibitors as well as visitors and guests from the City of Nottingham and hackers and Hackerspaces from all over the UK… THE WORLD even…

We still welcome any donations and gifts we’re particularly keen to increase the amount of furniture, tools and equipment available to members and guests.

Our first Open Hack Night in the new space will be Wednesday 4th May 2011.

See you there!
