MadLab Maintenance

Title: MadLab Maintenance
Location: MadLab
Description: Come down and help give MadLab some TLC
Start Time: 11:00
Date: 2012-03-04
End Time: 17:00

The MadLab is a free community 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 two years now and we are more than pleased to see how many groups have made us their “home”.

To-do list

  • Finish the bookshelf
  • Replace damaged wooden frontage
  • Finish the kitchen cabinets
  • Clean the microwave
  • Add blinds to the top floor

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!!

Regular duties

Sweep floors and stairs, mop floors, clean kitchen, clean the toilets.

Repairs

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!

We really appreciate your support and welcome any suggestions for the Maintenance Team or items for the to do list.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Natalie

Fundraising for Maintenance Day

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Hi Everyone!

We are raising some funds for Maintenance Day.

We plan to build a bookshelf and improve the kitchen even more.

We don’t like asking for money – we firmly believe that financial contribution should not be a factor in access to places like MadLab, and that open access increases both the value of the superstars who house their communities here and the reach that is afforded to everyone – including those without spare funds.

But we’re asking if you can help all of us raise a few more pounds so we can complete the building of the kitchen and bookshelf, so we finally have an operational library available here.

Building Funds ACHIEVED!! : £400 donated!
