Simple tasks that you can do right now

  • Clean under the windows
  • Clean windows in
    • The quiet room
    • The main area
    • The classroom
  • Fit the projector screen on the far classroom wall (opposite the door) needs brackets making (accurate welding + metal forming), also very heavy will need more then one person.
  • Fit the skirting board in the quiet room
  • Tidy the quiet room into a quiet room rather than a bomb site - should wait for the network cables to be done.
  • Move books from the back room next to the back door to the bookshelves

  • Fix lightbulbs in all the toilets
    • All are normal BC fittings, apart from tube over basin in shower
  • Clean the kitchen - could do with painting and more shelves
  • Assemble all tables in the main room, and put them to one side, or in desk clusters

  • Collect the downstairs wood-pile into one place out of the way
  • Go through member boxes separating out boxes that are full of general equipment and do not belong to members, placing them on separate shelves that are clearly marked

    • The one above the loading bay and the two to the left of it work according to sol, that leaves just the one to the right of the doorbot door. Talk of replacing it with a super-led thing?
