Now that the actual construction work for the Shed has been completed we need to think about the internals. A 1 to 50 plan of the Shed has been created and copies can be collected from Chris Nixon or can be downloaded here, we shall try and find somewhere to leave a few so that you can pick them up when you want. The plan includes footprints for the machine tools that we currently have. Ideas need to be passed to Rod for discussion by a small working group on Thursday 22nd February. Hopefully everything can then start to be shifted around and we should have a working workshop again in the very near future.

We have received confirmation from Asda that the Token Scheme for the period January to March has now started and we are one of the good causes.

Can you all please spread the word around to family and friends, it could be worth £500 to us! So it is important that you ask for your token when shopping in ANY Asda store and as long as you put it in our slot in the Newgate Lane store they will all count.
