New Hackspace

We moved! So much has been happening, the news may lag behind a bit.

The new rent is 4 times as much as our previous space, so we're currently in a spending freeze until we can make up the subscriptions. We can currently support ourselves for up to 3 months maximum.

Space Warming Party

We had a space warming party and barbecue to celebrate the new space, with a huge number of people visiting.

RFID Access

We've had people in the space every evening since we moved in, and we've finally got a cool hacker entry system for members.

Jonty installed a new pan/tilt camera


After a failed eBay bid a new way of purchasing high-value equipment has been pioneered. This has been necessary for coping with the spending freeze.

So far we've received pledges for:

  • Fridge
  • Laser Cutter
  • MIG welder
  • Bubble Etch Tank
