Space temporarily CLOSED as of 2020-04-28

The hackspace is closed until a number of issues can be addressed. To be clear we are still operating and the space still exists but entry will not be allowed. We will post more information as we get it.

Wellington Mill is currently condemned after a fire in another unit, and there is no power to the Space. We don’t currently have a timeframe for Greater Manchester FRS un-condemning the Mill, or for Northern getting power back to the building.

For the record “condemned” as far as we know, means that the space should not be accessed by anyone. We have no reason to believe the building will be torn down.

Access can be granted in emergencies and please contact the board to arrange this.
As for space membership and our existing rental agreement, this is currently being discussed with the board and the landlord respectively.

For clarity I am not a board member, so I would like this message to be approved accordingly but I thought it would be important to share this now.

I think it would be very reasonable for a key holder to allow access to members in a sensible socially distanced way to simply collect items.

Please see latest board statement for official statement on the matter. Thanks!
