Week 356 – Taking a Laser-cutter For a Walk

3rd April 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

So, this weekend was the Big Move itself!  Thanks everyone who helped clean, pack, carry… and everything else over the past few days!  Everything is now out of Gostins and over at the Tapestry, and as you’ll have seen we are now officially up and running in the new space.

We have plenty still to do before the move is all finished off, so any and all help still most welcome.

The painting is almost all done.  The flooring and then laying things out are the big remaining tasks.  The kitchen should be plumbed in this week, and the worst of the flooring covered in plywood and carpet (and vinyl in the kitchen).

If you want to help out, check the DoES Move The Tapestry and DoES Move  – Settling In labels on the Somebody Should issue list, or get in touch.

Our Crowdfunder Campaign

To help pay for all the costs of the move we’re running a Crowdfunder campaign.  We need your money and, more importantly, your help in getting word out about it.

The campaign is going really well!  We’re at 90% of our target with two weeks left to run!!!  However, there’s nothing to stop us going over our target and making the space even better.  In fact, there have been some unexpected extra costs, or at least, the opportunity for extra costs, if we want to make the floors top notch.  So, we’re working on some stretch goals – keep an eye out for announcements on them as we get closer to our original target.

Please share it with people you know, email them, tweet about it, post on Facebook or Instagram… it all helps, even if you think you don’t know many people, you’ll know different people.  Plus if you tag the DoES Liverpool accounts in any of your social media posts it lets DoES and others share your post too, so giving us more impact than if you just copy one of the DoES posts.

So, get as many people as possible too visit http://bit.ly/DoEpicFunding!
