Important information to explain

  • Nic Marshall’s half of G10 and the equipment in it is not to be used by hackspace members.
  • How to sign up for membership:
    • Enter details on the form on website
    • An automated email with bank details will be sent
    • Set up a standing order
    • Email committee to tell them standing order is set up
  • Key cards and keys are managed by the building owner, the form to request them is on the website. All members must have their own key card and key.
  • Before you get your key card and key, you can use the space whenever another member can open and lock up; try the Google Group, Thursday evenings or just risk turning up.
  • Bristol Hackspace is 100% run by volunteer members.
  • The Google group is our main means of communication between our members.
  • Some consumables are provided by the hackspace, but we rely on members to replenish these (and claim back the money from the treasurer).
  • We have two benches in G11 so we can hold events and have space for members to work. We do not allow any part of the hackspace to be booked exclusively.
