People, Places and Projects

We now have a home at Ercildoune. 66 Napier Street, Footscray. It's a short walk from the train station, opposite the police station. Come along to the meeting this Wednesday to check it out. We have a special guest who will be giving a short talk about microfinancing, and we hope to set up the 3D printer afterwards, ready for some making.

We plan to have the space open at regular times throughout the week (Wed, Fri and Sat evenings at this stage, pending support), and are developing ideas to ensure the space is useful for group members. If you have any suggestions for what you would like, or can offer, please let us know.

    My apologies - was set to come tonight, but haven't been well, and ended up sleeping through (and not safe to drive at the moment either). I'll try and make next week.
