Message from the trustees
Recently we have been discussing within the teams and membership that a number of large jobs have been on the list for a considerable amount of time. The Trustees along with the teams have decided that we have enough jobs now to run a “hack the space” weekend. The purpose of this would be shutting the space during this time where no members other than volunteers of this weekend will be permitted to use the space. This will cover both upstairs and downstairs, the following jobs are currently in the plan.
Replacement of studio floor
Redesigning the Large Project Storage Area
Reorganise comfy area including rewiring of speakers
Checklist of tools and PAT testing
Electrics within the workshop (replacing lights) etc
2.5 jobs TBC
The Trustees request that all teams please keep thinking on what else needs completing and a wiki page will be set up so members can see the job list, place their names against the jobs and the times they can volunteer their time.
Our proposed shutdown will be on 18:00 on Friday 8th February till 18:00 Sunday 10th February.
As you are aware the Trustees are also taking a break for Christmas so I remind members that it make take some time to get any questions answered during this time. I will be taking point on this project and making sure that we have enough people to do the jobs along with materials ordering and liaising with Teams to make sure everyone can have a great day and take part.
If you have any questions you can email the trustees or myself directly. [addresses in Google Group post]
I look forward to posting more information in the near future.
James Adams On behalf of the Trustees
