It's the first day of Summer, and despite the horrible weather, we're looking forward to a great month of activity at the Hackspace!
Not yet a month from the General Election and the glory of Eurovision, it's voting time again! We're holding this year's trustees elections, and if you're a member of Hackspace, it's time to stand up and be counted!
Thanks for coming to the AGM!
We held our 2015 AGM on the 23rd of May at Antenna. Thank you to everyone who came along. It's the first time we've held the meeting at a venue other than the Hackspace, and we thought it was great! The trustees would love to hear your feedback on the venue and the event; let us know what you thought at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vote for Pedro!
At the AGM, we introduced the candidates who will be standing for election as trustees this year. You can meet the candidates here. If you are a Hackspace member, you should have received an email with instructions on how to vote online. If not, please contact Kate Bolin and let her know. Voting closes on the 3rd June at midnight!
Please, mister, can we have our drill back?
One of the shiny new Bosch cordless drills we recently bought has gone missing. If you have it, please can you return it? Please remember that all Hackspace tools should be kept in the space for all members to use.
We've just replaced the belt sanders in the workshop. There are two new sanders; a four inch belt / six inch disc sander, and a whopping 12 inch disc sander. We've also replaced the tired old table saw with a fantastic new one!
Rollo Dance Academy exams
Our upstairs neighbours, Rollo Dance Academy will be holding exams on the 14th and 28th June. Please avoid making noise during both those days, especially using tools in the workshop!
