Week 343 – Happy New Year!

2nd January 2018

Each week we’ll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.

And remember, if you’re involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!

The Big Move

With our move to the Tapestry looming, we’re including a brief update on how things are going each week.

A few more people got to see the new space last week as we hefted the massive (new, not-yet-functioning) laser-cutter from where we’d stashed it at the Tapestry and onto our floor in the building.

The new space is looking great, although with still a reasonable amount of work to be done before we can move in. Most noticeable is that the toilets on our floor (there are another three on the ground floor that we’ll share with the rest of the building too) are yet to go in. Part of that was down to us finalising how many toilets we wanted. Rather than squeeze in three toilets, we’ve opted for two, as that lets us have a fully accessible toilet in our space (in addition to one on the ground floor). That’s all finalised now, so will let the work on that carry on.

However, you don’t have to take our word for it, you can come along for a look yourself (don’t worry, no lifting of laser-cutters required) on January 11th at 10am. Check the Google Group for full details of the visit.

In preparing-for-the-move news, Jackie and Chris Thompson took advantage of the festive break to do a load of sorting out in the workshop and storeroom in Dinky. Lots of stuff has moved into the staging room, junk cleared out, etc., which should make it easier to rearrange and sort through what’s left. They’ve also been deploying the first of the “Notices of Disposal” on things where it’s not clear who they belong to (i.e. not on someone’s desk or in their labelled box), or whether we should be taking them to the new space. Don’t panic if you think you might have something knocking around that could fall under it, it’ll be a few weeks before anything with a notice on gets disposed of, but we do want to encourage you to come in and label your things clearly or take them home 😀

There are lots of things to do, both with the move and in preparation for the move. If you want to help out, check the DoES Move label (stats: 41 open, 24 closed) on the Somebody Should issue list, or get in touch.
