Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

Howto: restock the fridge

People may be duped to buy expensive beer from unscrupulous local traders leaving our donation tin sad and empty. So let's overcome the problem with a shared google map and a howto.

Bartering Skills

When you buy large amounts of beer, try and get a better price than what is marked on the bottle/can. I can always get a reduction when buying for Hackspace because I tell the shop keeper about our buying power and that we will be coming again next week if the price is right! You should try it with Pizza, Beer and just about anything. Then share your experiences of getting good deals so we all benefit.
