The Resources Team works on keeping various stocks of items that are used up over time but are typically not stocked by pledge drives, tools or other things.

How to request items

Please use the Google form to request new items.

You can contact the group at resources -at- but you will be directed to fill in the form in the first instance.

You may also come to the monthly meeting (see below) to request items; please bring an example and some rough information at a minimum. We also are happy to have new members of the group to help us.

Items are then voted on by the Resources Team members monthly and it will be brought if there are enough yes votes. For emergency items they may be purchased more immediately; please email the group if it is an emergency.

Monthly Meeting

The Resources Team is having a meeting on the first Tuesday of every month, at 8:30PM.

Anyone is welcome to come and request items although decision making, budgeting and buying will be handled by the resources team. The resources team will have a final say on any items suggested but we are open to anything being suggested and a record will be taken so we know the what and why of what decision was made.

We also will sometimes stock check certain items, on a list to be determined by what is used a lot.

Meeting Notes

Operational Information

For Resources Team use only, please do not use these forms:


List of suppliers need to be filled in here so we know where to get stuff from.

  • Macro
  • Staples
  • Range/Wilco - Storage boxes.


HP 5550dtn:

  • Black - C9730A - HP: £200. Amazon: £160
  • Blue - C9731A - HP: £280. Amazon: £212
  • Yellow - C9732A - HP: £280. Amazon: £211
  • Magenta - C9733A - HP: £280. Amazon: £201

Bundle: Amazon - better seller is £765.00

Others will be cheaper - a whole set for £171 on Amazon or £260 on Cartridge Save. Probably go for the Cartridge Save ones to save in bulk for redo ones.

NB: Needs to be revisited - apparently the black toner already has gone?


We will use Wham boxes (The Range or Wilko) for storing most resources so we (and all members) can easily find them. Noted on the core items list.

The ones we use are not always in stock, especially at Wilko, but are replenished frequently. Dclarke (talk) 18:06, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
