Hi all,

Just wanted to fire out a quick message to check in.

I appreciate that during this time of unusual circumstances, we're not meeting up as normal.

The idea of a hackspace was as much to me about being social and having an outlet to chat about whatever we were working on, as being a physical workspace, so I think it's important that we make an effort to stay in touch.

A few of us stay in touch through Facebook, Hangouts and Whatsapp. I really want to be as inclusive as possible and open this up to everyone. So, as everyone has email, I'm starting here.

I'm really keen to hear what everyone has been up to during the lockdown. What have you been up to? What have you found interesting recently? Let us know.

An idea I've been toying with is having an online meetup, perhaps using Zoom, Twitch or something similar. It's certainly something we've discussed in the past, and now is probably a good time to do it.

If there's any demand for this, we'll make arrangements to make it happen.

Let me know what you think.

Stay safe.

I've been fine tuning my new 3d printer. Really need to get a dremel onto some parts to smooth them out a little though.
