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.
We’re up to five quotes for the fit-out, so should be making a decision on that soon. One of the factors feeding into that decision is how much money we can spend on it, and on that note, there’s been some good discussion about the crowdfunding campaign over on the Google group (and still a bit of time if anyone wants to chime in and help).
The landlord’s refurbishment works aren’t finished but are still progressing. The walls and flooring changes for the toilets on our floor are finished, so there’s just the plumbing work to do there. We should get the keys from the landlord by the end of this month.
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.
The DoES Liverpool to-do list is stored in the issues of our Somebody Should repository on github. Head over there if there’s something you’d like to report, or if you want to help out fixing things.
