Informal “Hack the Space”

We were hoping to have a ‘Hack the Space’ day on Monday 3 January, but at the moment it might be a good idea not to get everyone in at the same time. There’s still plenty of opportunity for anyone with an interest in keeping DoES Liverpool looking good and working well to come in and help make that happen though. If you’ve got a bit of time on your hands this week or over the long weekend then get in touch. If you haven’t go a fob then we’ll arrange for someone to let you in. Some ideas of things to work on (if you don’t have your own!) are:
  • General vacuuming, dusting and tidying
  • Organising things on the shelves better, so that we can store more stuff and find things more easily
  • Similarly with things in drawers and cupboards
  • Working on the laser cutters to make them work better and cleaning their beds so that projects don’t get covered with soot
  • Cleaning out the laser cutter room (we’ll need to remove all the sheet material that’s making it difficult to get into the room at the moment, so if anyone has anything they need to keep then please collect it asap)
  • Tidying and arranging things better for sewing and knitting machines in Dinky (may include moving the bookcases from the Event Space and moving chairs to the Event Space)
  • Taking cardboard to the recycling centre
  • Getting more of the desks cleared ready for new members, hotdeskers and our new Boost members

and of course anything else from the Somebody Should list (https://github.com/DoESLiverpool/somebody-should) and anything else you’ve noticed would improve things
