The view from the road outside
Inside the courtyard
The fire escape: sunbathing space for the local cat
Ground floor main space
Large and plenty of light; will be great for events
Second floor - cosy sleeping space
Third floor - more cosy snoozespots
From upper floors you can get good views of the gate
...and the yard
This ivy in the kitchen had grown THROUGH the window putty into the building!
You also get a good view of the gate from the kitchen
Not pictured in these photos are the 'kitchen' and the darker downstairs middle rooms.
We decided to have an 'open session' every day 5pm-7pm. People are welcome to visit at other times of the day (within reason, obviously!) but we aim to make that a very socialable slot when lots of people will be around. A chance to come and chat, meet others, discuss ideas for projects that could happen here, or help out with jobs that need doing.
We also decided to have a practical meeting every evening around 8pm, at least for the first week or so, to talk about any issues that come up and organise stuff that needs doing.
This Saturday will be a work day when people are encouraged to come along and help improve the space. Times and details TBC.
This Sunday we will have a community meal, open to all, free of charge (we may ask for donations). Times and details TBC.
Come out and play! The potential of this space is inspiring!
