Week 349 – Stroopwafels and Soldering

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!

Things of Note

The Big Move

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

We’ve got three quotes for the fit-out now, and the newer quotes are looking more affordable.  As you’ll have seen from Helen’s post to the Google Group, we’re looking at how to raise the cash to help cover the cost of that with some crowd-funding, so please let us know if you can help.

The landlord’s works at the Tapestry are coming along, but not yet finished.  They were busy fitting out the toilets when we last visited.

And we’re also taking advantage of people having moved out of our current building.  As we’ll have more space to fill in the new space, we’re collecting more (and better) furniture from some of the empty offices.  There’s more dismantling and carrying still to do if you want to get some practice in before the big move…

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 on the Somebody Should issue list, or get in touch.
