On Thursday 19th November 2015 we set about clearing the dumping ground in the basement between the wood racks and members boxes. The area is not supposed to be storage but became one during the space refurbishment. We're now in desperate need of more members box shelves, so it has to go!


After working through everything in the area we found that >50% of it was actual rubbish, and the majority of the remainder should be either sold, installed, or removed from the space ASAP. If you know something about an item please let me know, I've not had time to search all the wiki/mailing list for information about them.

I will be actively chasing up everything on this list until we manage to clear the area.

A notice about removing things

Just because things on this list need removing does not mean they are free to take. ANYTHING BELONGING TO THE SPACE MUST NOT BE REMOVED WITHOUT TALKING TO THE TRUSTEES FIRST. If things are removed without approval it will be treated as theft.
