Here is the detailed info for the first community working sessions to create our cafe.

First session: Saturday Feb 13th

TASK 1:  Shift all the items stored in the undercroft, by sorting them into

  • festival performance props and sets – move to new storage space (a few floors up)
  • items we can use for the cafe – move into area that does not need digging out
  • items we need to get rid off – items to be stockpiled/bagged until next weekend

Equipment you need: sturdy shoes / boots, gloves

TASK 2: Demolish the timber enclosure in the centre of the undercroft. All materials can be recycled, and will be stored with items under b. above.  Note that this task will require some skill using hand tools and carrying out demolition tasks – volunteers will need to have some building/demolition experience and accept all responsibility for their safety on the day.

Tools required – hammers, crow bars, hand saws, portable lighting (please bring if you can)

Equipment you will need: gloves and eye protection.
