You are responsible for your own safety and to not endanger others. Only use equipment if you've been trained in its use. Or as they say at Nottinghack, “Do not be on fire!”

You're welcome to visit us on our open Thursday meet-ups. If you want to drop in more than once or twice a year; want to use the space at other times or use any of the equipment then we'd like you to become a paid up member. Pay what you feel it's worth to you. People pay between £10 and £40 per month.


Please put your name in the Sign-In Book whenever you use the space. It helps us apply for funding; get concessions and show what a useful asset we are to the community.

Item For Disposal Labels

These labels are intended to stop stuff that is wanted by one member being thrown out by another and are to be attached to any significant items to be thrown out. The items should be placed on the “on the way out shelves”, the top two shelves on the rack above the Bins in G11. Items should normally be given one month on the on the way out shelves before disposal.
