I am at the space today i can help with the opening evening tonight
Hi, I sent Charlotte a message about this
Just use your own judgement
What can we share with the world wide web? Photos are always good
Not really, I haven’t been able to get down much this year! I am trying to change that though!
scraping the barrel, here is;
- 2 pictures of a finished Jewellery box I made at Christmas
- My first ever attempt on the lathe at last weeks induction
- picture of some shelves I put up at home
- picture of a pile of wood I plan to do something with this year!
I appreciate this doesn’t give you much to go on. I have faith in your marketing abilities though!
@Jackd do you mind if I shadow you today? I don’t want to jump head first into hosting.
Not at all! I have only done it once before so could use your help!
Thanks for letting me tag along! I feel much more confident
Thanks for your help!
I think it was fairly successful. We had 7 in total. 2 signed up there and then. 3 more said they would be signing up.
We had six sign-ups today…do you think they heard about some Membership cap thing?
It was mentioned.
They did yes.
@inmandmk is hosting tonight
Strange one…the membership joining system is in automatic suspension as we approach the 340 cap
Currently you can still sign up to the Membership system, but won’t be able to set up a direct debit
There’s a slim chance that we haven’t reached the 340 cap, and if so we’ll look at the recent unable-to-sign-up-ers and offer membership to any that we can based on sign-up time
So it needs to be made clear early on that we’re probably full. Which is quite something…
It could turn ugly?
Wee bit unpleasant
But hey who am I / are we to argue with the taxman
So… even though we’re not taking new members currently it’s fairly widely known that we have an open evening on a Wednesday
It will take a while for the word to get round about the cap and until then we’ll get hopeful visitors turning up
Last we we had about 5, @inmandmk? David handled them ably
So…we need to be prepared for guests tonight
We can still give them a friendly welcome and a tour, but need to get the message across early that signups are closed
Who will take on this brave task tonight?
What’s been happening over recent weeks?
We’ve stopped advertising Open Evening (of course) and have done a few posts telling our followers that it’s not running at the moment
I’m sure that we’re getting a few people dropping by though? The knowledge that we’re open on a Wednesday night has spread far and wide
So…do we still need members on standby in case of guests?
