This meeting is to further discuss our Hackspace in Stockport. Want to
find out more about what a hackspace is? Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackspace
for (a few) more details, and consider looking around http://hackerspaces.org.
We’ll be at the Grey Horse Public House, Reddish on Thursday 30th July
The meeting will discuss further the research we’ve done towards
getting a permanent location, talking about our current and possible
future projects, and much more (hopefully)!

How to get there
Remember, although this is listed with a Stockport Postcode, the venue
for this event is within the M60, and closer to Manchester City Centre
than Didsbury, with very frequent train and bus links, plus easy
access to major routes into Manchester and Stockport.
- By Train
Take the train from either Stockport (STP) or Manchester Piccadilly
(MAN) to Heaton Chapel (HTC) train station which is approximately a 15
minute walk from the pub, or you can also get the train to Reddish
North (RDN) station from Manchester Piccadilly, which is about a 30
minute walk away.
- By Bus
If you want to get the bus, the 42A and 173 buses go right past the
pub and the mill, while the 203 bus stops just up the road (at
Holdsworth Square) and the 192 stops on Stockport Road (the A6).
