MadLab Maintenance Day 1 Review

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Over two dozen groups meet at MadLab every month – that’s hundreds of people, and twice as many feet walking over the floors and stairs, and just as many hands using the kitchen, the bathrooms, the desks and light switches. In order to withstand the strain, we set up the MadLab Maintenance Days – one day every month, where a member of each group helps fixing, cleaning and tidying the space where necessary.

For the first Maintenance Day on the 22nd May, we planned to paint the (slightly grubby) walls on the first floor, tidy up the wooden boards behind the stairs, replace broken light bulbs, and clean the dark little corners that had been gathering dust for over a year. Around midday, a small group consisting of Bob and Ben (HacMan), Paul (HacMan, DIY Bio), Richard (Writers forum), Kat (MGG, Sanctuary Game Night), Sam (Manchester Girl Geeks), and Matt had gathered at the MadLab for an afternoon of scraping, hammering, drilling, sweeping, and painting.

MadLab Maintenance

Title: MadLab Maintenance
Location: MadLab
Description: The first ever MadLab Maintenance team meet this month, to give MadLab some TLC!
Start Time: 11:00
Date: 2011-05-22
End Time: 17:00

The MadLab is a free space. Everyone who uses the MadLab has the freedom to run public events here (free of charge), but also the freedom to change and improve the space. We have been running the MadLab for over a year now and we are more than pleased to see how many groups have made us their “home”.

Keeping the venue clean, nice, and shiny, fixing things that are broken and improving the interior however is a task that requires a lot of time and effort, which our small team currently doesn’t have. In order to keep on top of these maintenance tasks, we have started the MadLab Maintenance Team.

We ask every group that meets at MadLab on a regular monthly basis to nominate one or more members each month to come in on a Sunday afternoon and help us tidy, mop, paint, and fix everything until MadLab shines again in all its glory.
We would like you to volunteer your time and diy skills, to help us clean up the space. If you have a friend with OCD please send along!!

Please help clean …
Sweep floors and stairs, mop floors, clean kitchen, clean the toilets.

We also have a few building repairing jobs …
To paint the 1st and 2nd floor, sandbast wooden floors ready to paint, box in the boiler, fix striplights on ground floor, tidy up cupboard and put shelves in cupboard on top floor.
Oh, and there will be free donuts, tea and coffee for all helpers!
Keep updated with the MadLab Maintenance Team …

Please watch out for the email announcing the date and let us know who is coming from your group. We really appreciate your support and welcome any suggestions for the Maintenance Team or items for the to do list. Future MadLab Maintenance cleaning day will be on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Natalie at office@madlab.org.uk
