Marcus: Big Tools

"We need some big tools."

MLl says we are missing smaller power tools, such as soldering station, battery driver, etc. DM suggested strategy of breaking each area up and produce wish list, then donations with backspace matching to buy things.

Dominic suggested gaining sponsorship from machine mart for larger tools.

DM and Marcus to split areas up and wish list

Marcus to sort big tools

Marcus: Healthy Food

Marcus to buy £5 of fresh fruit each Wednesday, paid for from snackspace.

DM: Marketing and Membership

Need to think about getting more people aware of the space. Agreed that concentration needs to be on events and web content at the moment, with maybe posters up in the space.

MLl: Nanode Workshop

Ken Boak has suggested a date in September for workshop with HSNOTTS paying for fuel and food. Decided to push back to November, HSNOTTS not paying for fuel or food.
