The Big Move

Did you hear, we’ve moved to The Tapestry, just off London Road. We’re open for business, but while we’re settling in we’re including a brief update on how things are going each week.

We’ve got hot water in the toilets! This mightn’t seem a big deal (and really, it isn’t, the only reason we didn’t have it from the off here at the Tapestry is because the water heater fitted wasn’t powerful enough. We’ve got a new one now), but it was something that we didn’t have at all in our six-and-a-half years at Gostins.

This week we did some more sorting out boxes and tidying things up, partly so we could empty the user research lab room in preparation for it getting fitted out. We also got the window frames painted in Room 29. Both of the workshop rooms now have doors fitted, although they need a top coat of paint over the primer.

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.
