Consumables Group

This is a newly-formed group of volunteers who aim to maintain the presence of items which are considered to be useful to have at all times. Tea is possibly the most important of these! Items ti be kept in stock are marked below with a *. If you notice anything in short supply or absent there are a couple of whiteboards or a message may be left on the Nottinghack Google group forum. Eventually there will be an email address which will copy to all members of the group.

Tubs and other places where consumable stuff is

This can't yet tell you where the item you want is, but it may help to know that there is a supply of it, somewhere in the Hackspace.

This is simply the label as it appears on the container.

More information (e.g. size / type / fullness and details of contents) to follow.--Dclarke 12:41, 19 June 2012 (EST)
