Well, hello!

Feeling a bit shy to reach out to all @members… nevertheless here we go again! It has been over a good year since our last outdoor volunteering meetup. spark in the eye Looking at what we’ve collectively accomplished on them still blows my mind, have you been in the Outer space for example?

We can ‘zhuzh’ the space up even more, can you believe it.

    -returning metal plate on messy door

  • create a new plate for front door

Let’s see when we fire it up. Biking sounds cool!

Yes to more make the space days! Thanks for organising @petra!

I am busy most of that day, but will try to come by if possible! If we can keep a running list of stuff that needs doing maybe some folks can do stuff ad-hoc during the week?


Let’s see what overspills from these events?

Happy making!

I can probably make this.
+1 for barbeque too, if there’s some vegetarian food.


Im happy to bring some vegetarian sausages and burgers, but I do urge everyone to bring a little something for the bbq too as my pockets are not limitless, lol!


That’s OK, I can bring some things.


The gas BBQ still needs a gas bottle with the right connector. Might need someone with a car to organise this :slight_smile: or there is the coal one but I don’t think we have any coal left.

I’ll check!

I have a car and happy to sort this out but not sure what is required, if you let me know I can maybe sort this out on Saturday afternoon?

I’ll also be there tomorrow evening for woodshop inductions so if I need to take anything to gas bottle supplier to get the connector or bottle then I can take it then?

I’ll be there tomorrow too, I’ll figure it out and let you know ?
