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.

Summary

This is a 65 inch plasma display donated for our non-commercial use by Cisco in the United Kingdom. Due to its size and weight, it's probably best to avoid moving it. It requires a strong television wall mount as it typically requires four people to carefully move it. Thank you Mentar & friends

Disposal

Cisco was kind enough to donate this for our Hackspace usage for as long as it's usable to the space. It may not be sold off or disposed of irresponsibly - we either return it to Cisco (Bedfont Lakes UK) or document its disposal at a WEEE-certified recycling centre
