Makerspace close to hitting funding target!

We are doing incredibly well with our membership pledges! Thank you to all who have generously pledged so far. You can view a few graphs detailing the pledge amounts here.

We are now still looking for just a few more founding members to help us reach our target. If anyone would like to pledge membership to help us have our very own 24/7 Makerspace, please fill out this questionnaire.

For more details of the costing we are expecting, please see the posts in the Spacening thread on the forum, which is updated with the different premises we are investigating.

Thanks once again to all pledgers for their support.

Urgent call for membership pledges

If anyone would like to help us get a 24/7 dedicated space( See the Spacening 2016 thread on the forum) and is prepared to commit to paying membership fees,  could they please fill out this questionnaire at their earliest convenience.

We are on the brink of getting a space with the right amount of committed pledgers. Thank you for your support.

The fee level depends upon how many people are prepared to commit.
A guide to the likely amount is detailed in this spreadsheet.
